The story behind this video

A lovely late summer's afternoon on the North Wales coast started with a walk around Rhyl harbour, watching as the low angled light caught the hulls of small boats left stranded in the mud by the low tide.

Then as the sun dipped towards the horizon it was on to one of my favourite summer sunset viewpoints, just around the corner from the harbour, to watch and film the sun setting over the offshore wind turbines of the huge Gwynt y Mor windfarm.

I wasn't disappointed with my excursion as, for once, the sky was clear along the western horizon and I was able to watch the sun slowly disappear into the sea as the high clouds and wet sand caught the lovely warm colours of twilight.

I kep filming for a while after the sun had set before calling it a night and heading home, tired but elated at having witnessed such beauty expressed in God's handiwork in action.

And the amazing thing is that it will all happen again tomorrow, the same but different every day.
