The story behind this video

A beautiful, warm, sunny day in early September and my wife Liz and I are enjoying a stroll around the harbour at Looe on the south coast of Cornwall, England.

Halfway through a two week stay near Bude in North Devon, we'd decided to spend the day exploring further afield, taking in some of the small fishing towns dotted along Cornwall's south coast.

Looe was our first port of call, and we found the place so nice that we stayed a couple of hours, enjoying a pastie as we walked along the promenades either side of the narrow harbour.

Of course, it wasn't long before I had my camera in action, first of all shooting some real time video of the small boats moored in the estuary, followed by the few hundred still images needed to make this time lapse sequence showing those lovely, fluffy cumulus clouds blowing across the skies above.

Then it was on to our next destination to see what awaited us further along the coast.
