A walk around the harbour town of Youghal, on the southwest coast of Ireland, in the pleasant late afternoon sunshine, brought to light these three examples of very different architectural styles.

Each one rather striking in its own right.

As well as providing lovely scenes of moored boats bobbing on the tide, Youghal harbour on the southwest coast of Ireland also yielded up a plethora of photographic gems in terms of the detail of fishing paraphenalia strewn along the jetty.

These three cameos were photographed within a few metres of each other during a pleasant stroll around the breakwater.

Time lapse video showing twilight and night at the Groves, Chester, on the banks of the river Dee Time lapse video showing a dramatic sunset over the river Conwy estuary on the North Wales coast at Deganwy

Here's the final pair of 'catch up' time lapse videos I have to present here at goHOWiE.com, both showing the change in lighting either side of sunset, but at very different locations.

But guess what, I was out shooting another one this very morning in Snowdonia, so no doubt I'll need another 'catch up' time lapse session before too long!

Time lapse video showing the sun setting behind the Point of Ayr lighthouse as viewed from Talacre beach on the North Wales coast Time lapse video showing the sun setting into the Irish Sea as viewed from Deganwy on the North Wales coast

I'm still playing catchup with all the time lapse videos I've been out shooting during this spell of good weather, such as these two examples of lovely sunsets on the North Wales coast.

Both were shot using my big and heavy 100-400mm zoom lens, but the stills for one were taken on a blustery evening, while the stills for the other were taken in calm conditions.

See if you tell which is which by clicking on the thumbnails to read more and watch the videos.

These two time lapse videos show just how lovely this transition can be.

Time lapse video showing the tide coming in around the Point of Ayr lighthouse at twilight on Talacre beach on the North Wales coast Time lapse video showing the tide going out around the Point of Ayr lighthouse at dawn on Talacre beach on the North Wales coast

With decent weather and longer days it's been a busy couple of weeks for me on the time lapse shooting front, so I'm taking a few days off from presenting the beautiful scenery of the southwest of Ireland here at goHOWiE.com in order to bring you some local North Wales loveliness.

We're starting off on the beach at Talacre, where I've been fixed in position at both ends of the day filming and watching in wonder as the tide did its thing around the iconic Point of Ayr lighthouse.

Panoramic image of the Comeragh Mountains in County Waterford, Ireland

The southwest Atlantic coast of Ireland is a wild and wonderful place, which my wife Liz and I spent a week exploring last April.

Our first port of call was an evening excursion to Roches Point, overlooking Cork Bay.

However, a quick looksee turned into something a bit more involved!

Time lapse video showing sunset and dusk with a ferry sailing by the South Stack lighthouse on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales

Surely one of the most stunning sunset views in the world.

Back to the beauties of North Wales today, with a time lapse video that I shot earlier this year overlooking the Vale of Clwyd and market town of Ruthin from the slopes of Foel Fenlli in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It's nice to go away on holiday, but it's even nicer to have somewhere as wonderful as North Wales to come home to!

Footprints on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands Boulders below the sea cliffs on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands Wave breaking over a boulder below the sea cliffs on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands A boulder washed by a receding wave below the sea cliffs on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands

The very last four images from the week that my wife Liz and I spent on Tenerife last February.

It already seems an age ago that we were enjoying the warmth of the sun while watching the beautiful and dramtic scenery of the sea cliffs at Los Gigantes on the west coast.

Still, at least I've got the photos to remind me!

The sea cliffs and beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands The sea cliffs and a couple sitting on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands A woman in the surf below the sea cliffs on the beach at Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands

Whew! - Just got back from a week on the southwest coast of Ireland with loads more time lapse and still images to deal with - and I'm still trying to complete my Tenerife portfolio!

Two very different coastlines and weather experiences between Tenerife and Ireland, and each very beautiful in its own unique way.

Here are three images shot on the volcanic beach at Los Gigantes (Tenerife - not Ireland!).

I have to admit I didn't see any bikini or Tee shirt clad holidaymakers on the beach during my latest trip to the Emerald Isle!
