A gorgeous summer evening on the North Wales coast and where else would you want to be than at the seaside, filming a time lapse video.
A favourite location for photographers from all over the country, the iconic Point of Ayr lighthouse on the beach at Talacre is just a half hour's drive from my home, so I can come here whenever the fancy takes me.
This particular evening was special, with the outgoing tide having left behind a wonderful, mirror-like pool on the beach, just at the right spot to catch reflections of the lighthouse and a fan of alto-cumulus clouds which caught the light of the setting in a most dramatic fashion.
So all in all, I spent two hours hunched over my tripod, making minute exposure adjustments as the natural light of day fell away and just enjoying the wonders of God's beauty unfolding before me.
Suffice to say I got home very late that night!
