The story behind this video

Epic weather over the bleak tors and moorland of the Dartmoor National Park in South Devon as my wife Liz and I attempt a short hike up to this granite outcropping.

On holiday in Devon for two weeks, we had set aside a day to explore this beautiful landscape.

Starting off in good weather from our base near Bude, we circled the park until we reached Tavistock before heading westwards to Two Bridges and on into the wilderness.

The scenery was stunning, and having spotted this tor in the distance we parked up and hiked up to the top, as featured in this time lapse video.

From our vantage point we could see storm clouds coming our way, dumping rain across the landscape, so Liz wisely decided to head back down to the car.

But I was entranced by the dramatic scenery and weather, so decided to risk staying there in order to shoot the 15 minutes of stills rewquired for this time lapse clip.

I'm glad to say my gamble paid off, as the first drops of rain started to fall just as I got back to the car!
