A rare break in the winter weather over the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales gave me the opportunity to head to the lakes and mountains to shoot some winter time lapse videos.
One of my favourite locations is along the shore of Llyn Mymbyr, looking towards the summit of Snowdon and the surrounding peaks of the Snowdon Horeshoe to the west.
Conditions were wonderful that afternoon in early February 2019, with fresh snow on the mountains lit by patches of sunlight and shadow from the broken clouds streaming by overhead.
Mind you, an hour stood motionless on a rock surrounded by water in a stiffish breeze in the middle of winter left me quite chilled by the end of the shoot, so I was glad to get back to the car and a flask of hot tea!
