Llandudno Timelapse #30

The story behind this video

I've lost count of how many still photos and videos I've shot from the West Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast.

You would think by now that I've exhausted all possible opportunities for fresh inspiration here, but that would be far from the truth.

This stretch of the coast is just so dynamic, with tide, light and weather constantly changing so you never see the same view twice!

So I had no qualms at all about pointing my camera to the southwest over the beach and sea to capture a time lapse sequence of this dramatic wave cloud over the headlands of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfecan as it caught the warm light of the setting sun far to the northwest.

Just another day in the office in beautiful North Wales!
