My wife Liz and I took the opportunity of a break in the weather during December 2020 to make a quick dash to the North Wales coast, to catch the sunset at Porth Dafarch on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.
We arrived about an hour before sunset, just at the turn of the tide with the whole sandy beach exposed to view.
At Porth Dafarch there's a stream which empties out onto the beach, and with a high flow rate after days of rain the stream was looking very dramatic as the rushing water cut through the sand at the top of the beach, only to fan out into a glowing watery delta nearer the sea.
This vast expanse of wet sand proved to be just what I needed to create this video, featuring the sunset and its reflection on the beach stretching out in front of me.
What an amazing place!
