Delicate clouds at dusk over the West Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast Delicate clouds at dusk over the cliffs at South Stack on the Anglesey coast, North Wales

My favorite times of day must be the hour before sunrise and the hour after sunset, when the light from the sun, which is below the horizon, makes its presence felt, lighting up high clouds with a vivid display of warm colours.

These two images, from the North Wales coast, were both taken after sunset, looking out over the Irish Sea.

Where else would you want to be of an evening?
