Llandudno Timelapse #28

The story behind this video

Fed up of boring blue skies and endless sunshine?

Then come to North Wales coast, where the weather can change on a half-hourly basis as fronts roll in from the Irish Sea bringing all four seasons with them.

Such was the state of play on this particular afternoon in early summer 2017, as Liz and I were parked up on Llandudno's West Shore, contemplating the risk of going for a walk as heavy cloud, interspersed with patches of sun, streamed overhead.

In the end we decided against battling the wind, with the prospect of a soaking thrown in for good measure.

But I wasn't going to let such drama go by unremarked, or unrecorded, so I set up my camera and tripod in the lee of our car to keep some of the wind off and set it off taking stills while I retreated back to the car.

It wasn't long before I was out in the elements again, rapidly packing the camera away as the next downpour arrived, but at least I'd recorded enough exposures to make this short time lapse of those dramatic clouds.
