The story behind this video

You can usually rely on the weather over the West Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast to be interesting, and this particular afternoon in February 2019 proved to be no exception.

A stiff breeze was blowing a weather front over from the Irish Sea, with heavy clouds roiling overhead and the westering sun sending beams of light through gaps in the wrack to play on the landscape below.

Ideal conditions for a time lapse video then, especially as I could take shelter in our car as my camera was left outside to brave the conditions as it took the hundreds of still images needed to make this clip.
