Windfarm Sunrise Timelapse #2

The story behind this video

What could be better than sitting by the seashore, listening to the breaking waves kissing the shingle as the sky lightens to the northeast in anticipation of a crisp, cloud free sunrise.

The answer's simple - all of the above, plus having a camera set up to shoot a time lapse of the event!

Add in some dramatic interest in the form of the gigantic wind turbines of the Gwynt y Môr offshore windfarm and you're onto a winner of a morning.

The only slight downside is the 3am start required to be onsite at my chosen spot on the North Shore promenade at Llandudno in time to catch the action.
