The story behind this video

A lovely summer's day, with mixed cloud and sunshine, provided the ideal opportunity for some time lapse video shooting along the North Wales coast.

The first stop my wife Liz and I made was at Porth Eirias at Colwyn Bay, and while I spent an hour taking hundreds of stills in three different directions, Liz enjoyed a coffee and a bit of knitting in the new cafe.

This is the final direction I pointed my lens, out to sea with the huge turbines of the Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm dwarfed by the massed banks of clouds overhead.
