The story behind this video

A week's holiday in the west of Ireland found my wife Liz and I re-visiting some of our favourite places along the Wild Atlantic Way coastal drive.

One such spot was the seaside town of Spanish Point in County Clare, comprising just a few houses and a hotel, situated on a lovely rocky bay with a great view of the sunset.

And it was close to sunset that Liz and I arrived here as the final destination on a day long tour of this marvellous stretch of coast.

So while Liz stayed in the car and carried on knitting one of her creations I braved the cold and windy conditions to capture the hundreds of still images needed to make this time lapse.

Well the sunset didn't disappoint, with the sun setting just off the tip of Spanish Point.

But I didn't stop filming once the sun had set, as the sky was glowing with colour for quite some time afterwards so I also captured the dusk as my Spanish Point Timelapse #2 video, which you can watch by following the link.
