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 my Spanish Point Timelapse #1 video showing 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 stayed out captured a few hundred more still images to make this video, beofre finally packing up for the drive back to our holiday cottage.
