The Blue Lagoon, located in Abereiddi, is actually a former slate quarry and was active up until 1910, before being abandoned and flooded. Nowadays, the site is owned by the National Trust and is extremely popular with adventure groups who use the site’s surviving platforms to jump into the deep water below.
The water has a very distinctive blue-green colour, which is caused by the build-up of minerals in the lagoon.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series was held at the Blue Lagoon in 2012, 2013 and 2016.
For this video, I filmed shots with my GoPro Karma to show the scale of lagoon. The close-ups were filmed on GoPro Session cameras on floating GoPoles, with selfie shots in wide mode. Some shots were filmed from the rock face or water level, using narrow mode at 60fps to allow for some time remapping post-production.
