The story behind this video

The combination of landscape, sea and skies along the North Wales coast is just a sensory wonderland, especially at either end of the day when, weather permitting, the sunrise and sunset provides a spectacular show of light and colour in the heavens above.

The West Shore at Llandudno is a great spot to catch one of those sunsets from, with acres of wet sand exposed at low tide reflecting the spectacular dance of light and colour going on overhead.

So with a stiff breeze blowing and my tripod firmly pressed down into the wet sand I spent a very happy hour or so filming the beautiful sunset playing out in front of me, keeping going until the incoming tide was washing over my tripod legs and all the colour had leached from the sky.

Just a wonderful evening.
