There's not many places in the world that you can witness amazing sunsets from all year round, and I'm blessed by living close to one of them, the West Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast.
With views encompassing an arc from the southwest to the northwest, including big skies, a fantastic landscape and very changeable weather, there's always something to see and photograph here at any time of year.
I filmed this particular sunset time lapse in early December, with a bitingly cold breeze coming off the sea and the sun setting as far to the southwest as it ever gets.
But it was worth putting up with an hour's worth of cold in order to watch and capture the beautiful cloudplay overhead as the sun sank below the horizon, briefly lighting the underside of the clouds before finally disappearing for another day.
