The story behind this video

A day out with my wife and daughter spent exploring the beauties of the Snowdonia mountains and North Wales coast culminated in a trip to the cliffs at South Stack on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey to watch the sunset over the iconic lighthouse, perched on a rock at the base of the cliffs.

But the sunset was not to be, as ever increasingingly thick sea mist rolled in across the Irish Sea, eventually blotting out the sun as it approached the western horizon.

Still, there were some lovely cloud and tide effects to film as the light slowly fled the scene and the blinking light of South Stack lighthouse became more and more noticeable.

One of those unspectacular, but very gentle lighting conditions that leave one with an innate feeling of peace, just ready for the long drive basck home.
