Sometimes I have to drive for miles to shoot a time lapse of a certain view, getting up in the middle of the night to arrive at my chosen destination in the hope of a dramatic sunrise.
And sometimes I just have to step off my patio and set my camera off shooting hundreds of stills while I relax off in the sun with a cool drink.
The latter applies to this time lapse video, filmed looking out over the fields and trees of County Clare, Ireland, on a beautiful late spring day as white, fluffy cumulus clouds drifted by overhead.
And all just a few metres from our holiday cottage in East Clare.
