The story behind this video

A late spring day of intermittent rain showers and sunny intervals culminated in this dramatic display of crepuscular rays over the North Wales coast at sunset.

Fortunately for me, my wife Liz and I had decided on a drive out to Rhyl for an evening walk along the promenade at Kinmel Bay, but when I saw what was going on in the western skies the walk just didn't happen.

Instead I set up my trusty Canon camera and tripod on the sea wall to shoot the few hundred still images needed to make this time lapse while Liz patiently sat knitting in the car.

By the time I'd finished the temperature had dropped significantly, so we never got our walk after all!
