Llyn Mymbyr Time Lapse #10

The story behind this video

A lovely, gentle evening spent exploring the beauties of the Snowdonia National Park ended up with my wife Liz and I enjoying a coffee while watching and photographing as light evening clouds caught the light of the setting sun as they swirled over the peaks of the Snowdon Horseshoe.

I always think the best view of this magnificent scenery is obtained by a scramble down to the rocky shores of Llyn Mymbyr, which is where I shot this time lapse sequence from while Liz wisely watched from our parked car, safe from the swarmes of midges that found my exposed skin so irrestistable!

Still, a few itchy bites was a small price to pay to enjoy such a beautiful scene for an hour.
