Ceiling detail in Evreux cathedral, Normandy, France

Today's photo is another detail from the inside of the cathedral at Evreux in Normandy, in which Liz and I spent a pleasant hour sheltering from the rain and admiring the architecture.

I find it always pays to look up when in a cathedral!

Stone arch and red curtain in Evreux cathedral, Normandy, France

Today sees the start of a new series of photos here at goHOWiE.com, taken earlier this year during a week long stay in Normandy, France.

Apart from half an hour's weak sunshine at the start of the week, it was grey skies throughout.

Just as well there's so much interesting architecture around to be photographed, such as these details inside the cathedral at Evreux.

Time lapse video showing the tide coming in at Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales

Whew! Just got back from a two week break in Mallorca.

Lovely place and we'll be going back, but one thing it doesn't have is a meaningful tide.

Not so on the good old North Wales coast, where tidal ranges of five to eight metres are the norm, as can be seen in this short time lapse video of the incoming tide at Rhos-on-Sea.

Timelapse video of dusk falling over Telford's suspension bridge, Menai Straits, Anglesey, North Wales

Time lapse video showing a small waterfall at the foot of Tryfan in Snowdonia, North Wales

Some days the light just isn't dramatic enough for photographing big scenery.

But flat light is just fine for capturing running water, such as this small waterfall at the base of Tryfan in Snowdonia, North Wales, shotm as a time lapse sequence.

Time lapse video showing the play of clouds and sun over the beach and Great Orme at Llandudno on the North Wales coast

A typical North Wales day at the seaside, Llandudno in this case, bracing to say the least!

Not so good for sunbathing, but great for time lapse.

Time lapse video dusk falling on a rainy evening at Victoria Dock, Caernarfon, North Wales

What do you do when you're out photographing and a downpour comes your way?

That's what happened to me during an evening's time lapse filming at Victoria Dock, Caernarfon, North Wales.

Fortunately I had a gadget with me that allowed me to carry on shooting, and produce this video presented here today at goHOWiE.com.

To find out what the gadget was, click on the link to go to the Caernarfon Timelapse #2 page.

Time lapse video showing a mega moon rising over Colwyn Bay as the tide comes in at Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales

Whew! It's been a busy month so far what with trips to the seaside and mountains of beautiful North Wales.

Today's offering here at goHOWiE.com is a seaside time lapse video shot from the promenade at Rhos-on-Sea, overlooking Colwyn Bay; and there's quite a bit going on.

Penmon lighthouse at dusk, with Puffin Island in the background, Anglesey, North Wales

This scene of the lighthouse at Penmon Point was taken after sunset, with the remaining twilight bleeding away to the west, and was one of the last images that I took here on that particular evening.

13th August 2014

Penmon lighthouse with Puffin Island in the background, Anglesey, North Wales

I'm normally here at Penmon Point, on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, at dawn to watch and photograph the sunrise, but on this occasion Liz and I made an afternoon visit, specifically to make a time lapse video of the incoming tide.

This is one of the still images I took that day, and even though I didn't take this shot with its potential to be a stand-alone image in mind, I'm very pleased with how it gives a glimpse of the beauty we were enjoying during our visit.

Sun rising over the beach at Llanfairfechan on the North Wales coast

Continuing with our tour of North Wales sunrises, today's image shows the sun rising over the beach at Llanfairfechan on the North Wales coast.

This beach has quite extensive sand bars which appear and disappear with the tide, making for an interesting time lapse video , from which this still photo was taken.

Moel Famau at dawn, featuring the ruins of the Jubilee Tower, North Wales

Today's image here at goHOWiE.com shows one of my favourite spots in beautiful twilight lighting.

This is the summit of Moel Famau, the highest peak in the Clwydian range, and also my local hill.

It's a real blessing to be able to visit places like this, and to pick and choose when to go to catch the best light.

Colwyn Bay wind farm at sunrise, viewed from Llandudno on the North Wales coast

Another day, another sunrise.

Although a beautiful thing to watch, a still photo of a sunrise can be a pretty boring affair unless there's something else in the frame to set the sun off against.

Cue the Colwyn Bay wind farm!

Sun rising over Snowdonia, viewed from the beach at Abersoch on the Llyn Peninsula

Sunrise or sunset - which is your favourite?

Mine has to be sunrise, because the rest of the world is usually in bed and I'm left in peace to enjoy the moment, such as here early one summer's morning on the beach at Abersoch.

Time lapse video showing sunset over the Marine Lake at West Kirby, Wirral

Sometimes outdoor photography can be a real physical and mental challenge, and sometimes it's so easy you think you're somehow cheating!

This time lapse video of sunset ove rthe Marine lake at West Kirby on the Wirral falls into the latter category.

Click on the link to go to the West Kirby Timelapse #3 page to see the video and read a bit more about how easy it was to take.

Abersoch beach at dawn with groynes, Llyn Peninsula, Wales

Lighthouse at the end of the Holyhead harbour breakwater, Anglesey, North Wales

OK, so I'm a lighthouse fetishist!

This is the sixty first image of a lighthouse in the galleries here at goHOWiE.com, but the first of this particular lighthouse.

Why only the first? Well it took a lot of effort to find a way to get to it, but it was worth it in the end.

Yachts becalmed at sunset on the Marine Lake, West Kirby, Wirral

A second image of becalmed yachts on the Marine Lake at West Kirby on show today here at goHOWiE.com.

I certainly wasn't going to waste the opportunity that presented itself on that lovely evening, although I don't think the yachtsmen were particularly happy about the lack of wind.

29th July 2014

Yacht becalmed at sunset on the Marine Lake, West Kirby, Wirral

This was one of those occasions where it was handy to have two cameras.

While my good old Canon 5D was clicking away taking the stills for my West Kirby Timelapse #2 video, I used my little Nikon to take a series of images of the yachts becalmed on the Marine Lake.

Time lapse video showing the sunrise and incoming tide at Abersoch on the Llyn Peninsula, Wales

Liz and I have just come back from a weekend at my daughter's family caravan at Abersoch, on the Llyn Peninsula, another beautiful part of Wales.

Being near to the beach I just couldn't resist an early start on the Saturday morning to take the stills for this time lapse video clip.

As usual, click on the link to go to the Abersoch Timelapse #1 page to see the video.

23rd July 2014

Abandoned explosives bunker, Holyhead, Anglesey, North Wales

Liz and I came across this rather unusual bunker while out walking the cliff path around Holyhead mountain, on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

We were a bit puzzled about its origins until a helpful local guy put us right.

Limestone escarpment near Llangollen, North Wales

It's not just the coast of North Wales that gets my juices flowing as a photographer, there's plenty to get excited about inland as well, such as the limestone landscapes around Llangollen.

Of course, the right light helps to bring out the best of any scene, and I certainly wasn't going to waste the opportunity of some rare late afternoon sun while driving home along the A542.

As usual, click on the link or thumbnail to go to the Limestone Escarpment #1 photo page to find out more.

14th July 2014

Point of Ayr lighthouse with remains of concrete path, Talacre, North Wales

Do I come here often?

You may be forgiven for assuming I'm having a senior moment today, with yet another image of the Point of Ayr lighthouse at Talacre on the North Wales coast.

A quick scan through the Wales Coast Gallery will convince you that - yes - I have been here before.

So why take yet another photo?

11th July 2014

Jetty and sun, Llandudno, North Wales

Back to the seaside for today's photo, showing my favourite jetty on Llandudno's North Parade about an hour after sunrise.

Taking photos directly into the sun usually isn't recommended, but with some hazy cloud taking the edge off the sun's brightness I just about got away with it.

Signpost for Offa's Dyke, Foel Fenlli, North Wales

Today's image here at goHOWiE.com is another from Foel Fenlli, part of the Clwydian range of mountains and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The 176 mile long Offa's Dyke National Trail passes along the flanks of Foel Fenlli, with attractive wooden way markers that just beg to be photographed.

The Clwydian range of hills, featuring Moel Famau, at dusk, North Wales

The end of a stunning day, looking to the northwest from the summit of Foel Fenlli over the Clwydian range of hills in North Wales, as the world holds its breath at the change of day into night.

8th July 2014

Puffin Island, Anglesey, North Wales

This is a very 'straight' photo for me.

Normally my landscape images are taken in dramatic lighting or from an unusual perspective, but on this occasion I thought I'd let the scene speak for itself.

This is Puffin Island, just off the southeasternmost tip of the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales, and is one of my favourite places to visit for a little calm and reflection.

So I took this normal photo, with normal perspective, under normal lighting, just as a reminder of how beautiful this part of the world is.

The lily pond at National Trust Bodnant Gardens, North Wales

Here's the last of three views that I intend to show of Bodnant Gardens from Liz's and my visit a few weeks ago.

Although I took dozens of photos, most of them were just of snapshot quality, with the harsh sun causing problems with contrast and colour.

The National Trust Bodnant Gardens, North Wales The National Trust Bodnant Gardens, North Wales

Sitting by my computer on a wet Friday, it's really nice to re-visit a couple of sunshine drenched photos from our recent trip to Bodnant Gardens in North Wales.

Mind you, bright sunshine is lovely for strolling around in, but makes photography quite tricky!

2nd July 2014

Water Lily

A water lily is something I've always wanted to take a photo of, but despite visiting well known water lily hot spots I'd been disappointed.

However, I finally succeeded in what I would consider as a most unlikely location.

1st July 2014

Tea shop by the Llangollen Canal, North Wales

Today's image here at goHOWiE is a second view from the wharf by the side of the Llangollen canal, this time focusing on the twee but attractive tea shop sign.

As with yesterday's photo, some serious manipulation was required to cope with the tonal range.

30th June 2014

Wharf on the Llangollen Canal, North Wales

A stroll along the Llangollen canal in the late evening sun is a real treat, especially when you come across scenes like this.

But taking a photo of the wharf wasn't all plain sailing.

26th June 2014

Time lapse video showing sunrise and the incoming tide at Llanfairfechan on the North Wales coast

While yesterday's time lapse video offering was very much a spur of the moment affair, today's video, showing the incoming tide and sunrise at Llanfairfechan on the North wales coast, was a much more pre-meditiated affair.

As usual, click on the link to go to the Llanfairfechan Timelapse #1 page to see the video.

25th June 2014

Time lapse video showing the view down Llyn Padarn towards Snowdon, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales

A rare sunny day in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, found Liz and I on the banks of Llyn Padarn, by Llanberis, munching a picnic and watching as clouds played over the summit of Snowdon.

Suitable material for a half hour's worth of time lapse shooting? I think so!

24th June 2014

The Clwydian range of hills at dusk, North Wales

If I ever needed a reminder of how blessed I am to be living in North Wales, then this photo would do nicely.

Taken in the dusk on the slopes of Moel Famau close to where I live, this image shows part of the Clwydian range of hills as the evening mist is just starting to rise.

Llangollen, North Wales, at dusk

Whew, that's the end of the latest batch of time lapse videos sorted out, and we're back to an 'ordinary' still photo for today's offering here at goHOWiE.com.

This is Llangollen, North Wales; a place that Liz and I don't visit very often, but it's quite a well known and heavily visited market town with lots of attractions.

What we like best is to stroll along the banks of the river Dee in the evening, and maybe stop off for a bite to eat somehere.

As usual, a click on the link or thumbnail will take you to the Llangollen #1 photo page to read more.

19th June 2014

Time lapse video showing sunset and twilight over the Clwydian range of mountains in North Wales

Another beautiful part of North Wales to look at today here at goHOWiE.com.

Shot just a couple of days ago, this timelapse video shows sunset and twilight over the Clwydian range of mountains, just ten minutes' drive from my home.

Where else would you want to live?

18th June 2014

Time lapse video showing the incoming tide at dusk at Penmon Point on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales

For sheer beauty it's hard to beat the Isle of Angelsey, just off the North Wales coast.

Mind you, it helps when the sun shines, as it did while shooting the stills for this time lapse video of the incoming tide at Penmon Point just before sunset and on into the twilight.

Time lapse video showing heavy stratocumulus clouds over Deeside, North Wales

This time lapse video showing heavy stratocumulus clouds passing overhead was a completely impromptu production, filmed over the course of an hour through my office window at work on the Deeside Industrial Estate, North Wales

I'm glad I always carry my camera gear and tripod in the boot of my car or I would have missed it!

Panning video showing the extent of LLandudno Bay including the Little Orme and the promenade

13th June 2014

Time lapse video showing the sun setting over yachts in the Conway Marina, North Wales

It's that time of year again when folk like me, who like to photograph outdoors during the 'golden hours' around sunrise and sunset, get sleep deprived!

Still, it's worth losing a little sleep to watch beautiful sights like this sunset over the estuary of the river Conwy in North Wales.

A seaweed covered rock on the beach at sunset, Llandudno, North Wales

A rock on the beach at dusk, Church Bay, Anglesey, North Wales

Evenings spent on the North Wales coast watching the sun set and dusk creep across the sky are wonderful, refreshing times for my wife Liz and myself.

On this particular occasion we were at Church Bay on the Isle of Anglesey on a lovely 'soft' evening.

6th June 2014

Shelter on the promenade, Llandudno, North Wales

A little bit of nostalgia from soggy childhood holidays on the North Wales coast, when these seaside shelters came in very handy.

Fortunately we didn't need to use this one, on the promenade at Llandudno, on this particular occasion as the weather stayed good.

As usual, a click on the link or thumbnail will take you to the Shelter #3 photo page to read more.

5th June 2014

The Little Orme under stormy skies, Llandudno, North Wales

It's funny how the same scene can look so different on different days.

This is the Little Orme at Llandudno on the North Wales coast, thankfully an area of very active weather, as can be seen in this image.

4th June 2014

Slate heap and ruined stone cottage, Moel Siabod, North Wales

Continuing on the theme of slate, photographed during my latest excursion up Moel Siabod in the Snowdonia National Park, here is the only other image worthy of note that I took on that very hazy day.

These derelict workmens' cottages and pile of slate spoil are typical of many such scenes throughout the region, and give a real sense of history and the rigours of mining, now pretty much at an end.

Slate details, Moel Siabod, North Wales Slate and lichen details, Moel Siabod, North Wales

A day's excursion to climb and photograph Moel Siabod in Snowdonia, North Wales, might have been a washout (from a photgraphic point of view anyway) due to dense haze.

It was a good job there was so much lovely slate around to compensate!

2nd June 2014

Time lapse video showing visitors passing through Monet's garden, Giverny, France

Well, Liz and I have just got back from a week's holiday in Normandy, and top of our 'to do' list was a visit to Monet's Gardens in Giverny.

Apparently it was top of quite a number of other peoples' list as well, as this short time lapse clip shows!

Great Orme, Llandudno, North Wales

Here's another still image chosen from among hundreds I took to make my Great Orme Timelapse #1 video.

On a good day there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be than on the North Wales coast, and the rarity of good days just makes the expeience that much more special!

As usual, click on the link or thumbnail to go to the Great Orme #1 photo page to read all about it.

22nd May 2014

Conwy Valley, North Wales

Whew! I've finally caught up on the backlog of time lapse videos that I needed to process. I didn't realise I had done so many!

So it's back to still photography for a while here at goHOWiE.com, starting off with a frame that I took as part of the hundreds required to make my Conwy Valley Timelapse #1 video.

Time lapse video showing dawn and sunrise over the Colwyn Bay windfarm, photographed from the East Shore at Llandudno on the North Wales coast

A very early start found me on the promenade at Llandudno on the North Wales coast, watching and photographing as dawn spread across the sky and the sun rose behind the turbines of the offshore Colwyn Bay wind farm.

Well worth losing some sleep over!

Time lapse video showing yachts on the Marine Lake at sunset at West Kirby, Wirral

In contrast to yesterday's video Moel Famau Timelapse #7 which was the result of careful planning and preparation, today's time lapse video of yachts on the Marine Lake at West Kirby was one of those happy events that you weren't expecting but just fell right into your photographic lap.

In fact this yacht race was so unexpected that I didn't even have a camera with me to being with!

Time lapse video showing dawn and sunrise at the Jubilee Tower on the summit of Moel Famau, North Wales

Some of the time lapse videos presented here at goHOWiE were the result of me just happening to be in the right place at the right time, and some were the result of planning and patience.

This video showing the dawn and sunrise on the summit of my local hill Moel Famau falls into the latter category.

Time lapse video of clouds passing over the full moon

This time lapse sequence of clouds passing over the face of the full moon as it tracked through the sky looks like it was taken from a Hammer House of Horror movie.

It certainly was a horror video in terms of exposure control and correction!

Time lapse video showing a rainbow forming over Foel Fenlli, North Wales

It was worth braving the rain to capture this short time lapse video showing a rainbow forming and disappearing again over the slopes of Foel Fenlli in the Clwydian range of mountains close to where I live in North Wales.

The weather got me in the end though!

Time lapse video showing clouds and sun over the Great Orme, Llandudno, North Wales

The beach at Conwy Morfa is one of Liz's and my 'go to' places on the North Wales coast, there's just so many different views to enjoy within a half mile walk of the car park.

On this particular day we were blessed with a stiff breeze and scudding cumulus clouds over the Great Orme on the far side of the Conwy estuary.

Perfect time lapse conditions, so I didn't let the opportunity go to waste!

Click on the link to go to the Great Orme Timelapse #1 page to see the video and read more about it.

You may have noticed too that I'm now starting to use Vimeo as my video hosting and streaming service, as the playback quality seems better to me than YouTube.

Time lapse video showing clouds over the Conwy Valley, North Wales

Time lapse video showing the play of light on low and high altitude clouds at sunset

My favourite times to be out and about photographing are times of change.

In this case it was the weather that was changing, thanks to the arrival of a cold front over North Wales, so I took full advantage of the interplay of cloud and light to make this short time lapse video.

Time lapse video showing various locations around Snowdonia, North Wales, during a cloudy day

This time lapse sequence is a bit of a travelogue around Snowdonia.

I took a day off work and toured some of my favourite spots, taking 15 minute bursts of stills as I went, and then strung them all together to produce this final compilation.

Time lapse video showing clouds scudding across the sky over the beach at Colwyn Bay, North Wales

This time we're at Colwyn Bay on the North Wales coast on a very blustery afternoon.

Great for cloud movement, not so good for camera stability!

Timelapse video of the full moon setting followed by the sun rising around the lighthouse on Talacre beach, North Wales

Now that spring is here I've been busy touring around North Wales shooting thousands of images for use in time lapse video sequences.

Over the next few days we'll be having a time lapse binge here at goHOWiE.com, as I catch up on processing the backlog of what I've been shooting.

We're starting off on a very special morning over at Talacre beach on the North Wales coast, watching as a couple of celestial bodies dance their way across the skies.

The west facing beach at Church Bay on the island of Anglesey off the North Wales coast is a great place to go to watch and photograph the setting sun.

These two photos wre taken within a few minutes of each other, and take full advantage of the plethora of interesting rocks strewn all over the sand.
