This is now the eighteenth time lapse video I've produced of the sunset out over the Irish Sea from the promenade at Deganwy on the North Wales coast.
You would have thought I would have had enough by now, but far from it!
Every time I come here to watch and film a sunset the scene is different.
The tide, the cloud cover and the position of the sun, all combine in an endless variety that keeps me coming back for more.
This particular evening was blessed with light clouds close to the horizon, which didn't obscure the sun, but rather spread its light and colour across the whole of my viewfinder in a spectacular display that just got better and better as the sun dipped lower, finally to set once again behind the western horizon.
Worth yet another time lapse shoot at Deganwy? You Bet!
And no doubt I'll be back there again soon.
