The story behind this video

A beautiful spring day, and where else would you want to be other than exploring the fantastic landscapes of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

This particular view takes in the shapely peak of Pen yr Ole Wen, as seen from the path up from the Ogwen visitors' centre to the waters of Llyn Idwal at the base of the Glyderau mountains.

My wife Liz and I paused for a breather and a drink here, so of course, I took advantage to shoot the hundreds of still images needed to create this lovely time lapse video of the light cumulus clouds blowing over Pen yr Ole Wen and the Ogwen valley, as hikers marched up and down to the lake.

What especially entranced me was the chiaroscuro dance of sunlight and shadow over the mountains and valley - just wonderful to watch and film!
