Llyn Mymbyr Timelapse #11

The story behind this video

One of the most iconic views in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, is this scene looking out over the waters of Llyn Mymbyr towards the peak of Snowdon in the far distance.

Although I've photographed this scene many, many times, each visit is different thanks to the wildy varying weather and lighting conditions in this part of the world.

This evening, around sunset, was just amazing, with calm conditions allowing the lake surface to act as a mirror for the beautiful clouds above as they caught the final rays of the sun before it finally disappeared at the end of another day.

The light show only lasted a few minutes in total, and I felt so priviledged to be able to witness and film such a marvel of God's creation in action.
