Porthleven | Biggest Storm in 10 Years | HD
Porthleven in Cornwall on the 6th January 2014. http://www.cornwalls.co.uk/weather/storm_watching.htm This was Winter Storm Hercules as it slammed into the south coast of the UK. The winds were only around force 7-8 but there was a huge ground swell which set the stage for a spectacular display at high tide.

Penzance Time Lapse
Time lapse video of some of Penzance's best assets late afternoon in December. Starting of with the Promenade I made my way along to Battery Rocks and the harbour. A brief stop at the bottom of Abbey Slip to film cars crossing Ross Bridge then up to the top. Some footage of the LED installation on the Exchange Gallery changing colour as people walk past then on to the Christmas lights.

3 of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches
A short film of the beaches just west of Newquay. These are three of the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere in Cornwall, especially on a sunny Spring afternoon when there's hardly a soul around. The beaches are Crantock beach, Porth Joke (or Polly Joke) and Holywell Bay. All feature the same lovely golden sand and clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Sennen Cove - Winter morning
A wander around the harbour and cliffs of Sennen Cove in the far west of Cornwall. Views out over the cliffs from the Coastguard lookout to Land's End and down across Sennen's amazing beach. http://www.cornwalls.co.uk/Sennen/ This is my first video taken using my Canon 5D and my first (hopefully of many) try at putting together a location film. Constructive criticism is therefore very welcome.

B3306 - West Cornwall Coast Road
I had some old footage of a drive between St Just and St Ives in West Cornwall. This is often described as the finest driving road in Cornwall, and I'd probably agree. It weaves a bendy path between the rugged coast and the moors taking in some stunning , ancient scenery. It's also one of my favourite cycling routes with a few nasty climbs, notably Eagle's Nest

Sennen Beach from the Air
This was my second proper flight with the DJI Phantom 2 Vision plus. This is Sennen beach in West Cornwall on a sunny January morning. It also takes in a bit of Gwenver beach next door and the cliffs at Escalls. Flying and filming with the DJI quadcopter is a pretty steep learning curve and I learn something every time I take it out. So, hopefully, when we get another bit of good weather I'll be out there building on this and capturing some even more stunning scenery...

Penzance Storm - February 2014 (HD)
Big waves batter Penzance promenade and Newlyn in February 2014. http://www.cornwalls.co.uk/weather/storm_watching.htm This was the 3rd big storm in a month with more forecast for next week. There was quite a bit of damage caused all along the seafront, with rocks strewn across the road and paving slabs torn up along the prom. Also a sizeable chunk of the path along Newlyn Green was destroyed.

West Cornwall Mines
A scenic look at some of the old tin mines and engine houses in the far West of Cornwall. At one time this was one of the most industrialised parts of Britain. Pretty much the opposite now. Two of the mines featured in this video had Cornwall's worst mining disasters. At Levant mine in 1919 the lift (man engine) carrying the miners to work broke sending 31 men plummeting to their deaths. An even more horrific accident took place in the mine next door. At Wheal Owles In 1893 a miscalculation lead to the sea breaching the mine drowning 20 men.

Cornwall Huge Winter Storm (HD) - 100ft waves
February 1st 2014 and another huge swell batters the coast of Cornwall, less than a month after the much heralded Hercules storm system. http://www.cornwalls.co.uk/weather/storm_watching.htm Whilst this storm received non of the fanfare of Hercules it was just as dramatic as it slammed into the coast of West Cornwall. This footage was shot at Porthcurno beach, Land's End and Sennen Cove - some of the most exposed spots in Mainland Britain. http://www.cornwalls.co.uk/

Cornwall: Quick Tour of the Lizard Peninsula
A quick video tour of some of the highlights of the Lizard Peninsula. There are plenty more but these spots are within easy striking distance of each other. Starting with the most southerly point in mainland Britain, the Lizard, this film takes in the lighthouse and Housel Bay. Next stop is the east coast and the fishing village of Cadgwith where thatched roofs line the valley and the beach is the harbour. From here we fly around some of the most dramatic coastline in Cornwall. Weird and wonderful volcanic sea stacks and turquoise water make Kynance Cove one of the most visited spots on the Lizard Peninsula. To finish off I went down to the only harbour on the Lizard's west coast, Mullion Cove. Filming was a bit difficult as there were a bunch of (frankly un-picturesque) workmen in fluorescent orange work gear fixing the south pier - so shooting was limited. In addition the wind had picked up so I didn't do any aerial filming which I'd planned. Good news is I shall be returning when the weather is perfect...

Man vs Storm waves - Man loses...
Must have seemed like a good idea at the time... Having seen what this storm did to the railings and pavement, and the size of the rocks in the middle of the road matey was lucky to get away with a soaking. More footage here: http://youtu.be/ms8DEng9kcE
