The story behind this video

My wife Liz and I were spending a couple of weeks' holiday exploring the beautiful scenery in Devon and Cornwall, and a day spent driving around Bodmin Moor was high on our list of 'must see' locations.

Bodmin Moor didn't disappoint, and we spent a happy couple of hours yomping up and down granite tors to the east of the moor, taking in the strange and gravity defying granite rock formations for which Bodmin is justly famous.

Not yet ready to head back up north to our holiday cottage near Bude, instead we took a short drive further south to have a look at the Golitha Falls Nature Reserve, one of the prettiest areas of Bodmin Moor, according to our guide book.

Golitha Falls is a series of small waterfalls along a section of the river Fowey, running through a wooded valley which was quiet, peaceful and very nice to gently stroll through, stopping every now and then to capture an image or video of the falls.

A nice way to end quite a strenuous day.
