A series of time-lapses shot at Gillan Creek near the Helford River on the Lizard in Cornwall, England during family holidays in Gillan over the last few years. Some are from St Anthony-in-Meneage, a hamlet on the north side of Gillan Creek, some from Gillan Cove on the south side.

I've always loved the stars and the the sea - the tides have their own timescale and I've tried to catch both the rising and the ebbing of the tides along with the movement of the stars and Milky Way. It is, of course, two celestial objects whose gravity causes the tides; the Moon and the Sun. Some of the time-lapses were taken with the Moon up which illuminates the ground/sea whilst keeping the stars visible. The very first time-lapse starts off with a 3/4 moon behind the camera and the Milky Way rising, as the Moon drops then sets the ground gets darker and the Milky Way more obvious. Two of the time-lapses were done in daytime showing the tide coming up on Gillan Cove. The people visible in both of these are mostly family :)

The area has many scenic spots I would love to time-lapse from but in England getting the tides, the Moon and the weather all right at the same time is quite rare!

The time-lapse was exported at 4K resolution - if you have a good fast internet connection then that will be best, otherwise 1080p (HD) works well.
