Llandudno Dusk Timelapse #7

License this video (4K, and HD formats available)

The story behind this video

The promise of a full moon rising over the North Wales coast at dusk drew me and my wife Liz to Llandudno, specifically the panoramic drive around the Great Orme giving us a great view over the North Shore promenade and the iconic Victorian pier.

I wanted to capture the moon rise as a time lapse video, so I set up my camera and tripod to capture the full sweep of Llandudno Bay, right from the Little Orme to the east, to the pier at the western end of the bay.

As the daylight faded away and the lights of Llandudno came on, there was still no sign of the moon, hidden behind a band of low cloud over the coast.

But I wasn't too perturbed, as the change from day to night over Llandudno was entrancing to watch, and eventually the clouds parted and the moon finally put in an appearance just to round this time lapse off nicely!
