Vale of Clwyd Time Lapse #4

The story behind this video

Between the stunningly beautiful North Wales mountain ranges of Snowdonia to the west and the Clwydian Range to the east lies the lovely and peaceful Vale of Clwyd with its market towns of Ruthin and Denbigh.

The slopes of Moel Famau, the highest mountain in the Clywdian Range, affords a great view out over this pastoral landscape, especially on a summers' eve as light from the sun, setting to the northwest, bathes the gentle contours of the Vale in golden light.

So despite the voracious midges Moel Famau was where I stayed, making exposure adjustments to my camera as it clicked away taking the hundreds of stills required for this time lapse video as the shadows lengthend across the Vale and the overhead clouds caught the last rays of the dying sun.

Finally all direct light had gone, and I packed my camera away for another evening for the walk back down the mountain to my car, itching from midge bites but content at having once again seen such beauty just a short drive from my home.

Isn't North wales just a wonderful place to live!
