The story behind this video

My wife Liz and I had just finished watching and filming a beautiful sunset and dusk at Crackington Haven on the atlantic coast of North Cornwall.

Heading back to the car in the dark we noticed a gibbous moon, just risen, playing hide and seek behind a bank of rapidly moving low cloud.

Entranced by the play of light and shadow, I unpacked my just packed camera gear and tripod and set about filming the moon and clouds.

I just managed to catch the moon and clouds interacting for a minute or so before the clouds melted away leaving the moon alone in the night sky.
