Roaring Water Bay, in County Cork on Ireland's southwest Atlantic coast, was as far west along the Wild Atlantic Way that Liz and I ventured during our week long stay in the area.

We were rather glad that the place didn't live up to its rather fearsome name while we were there!

My chosen visual art form on this particular summer's eve was the time lapse video, and I was able to put together these two sequences as the evening progressed, with just a rotation of my tripod head.

These two videos show the beauty to be found at either end of the day at two very different North Wales locations.

The only problem is that, with sunrise at 5am and sunset at 9.30pm, filming these lovely scenarios makes for a very long day!

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.

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.

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!

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!
