Consider this short video to be a ‘movie’ trailer for the Peak District National Park – I had simply intended to produce a serene and scenic animated postcard but it evolved into something else altogether.
Granted, it does not show all the key sights to be experienced in the Peaks – afterall the scenes are of places I’ve visited over the past few weekends – but I hope it gives a small reflection on the diversity of scenery to be enjoyed by all.
Initially, I had the running time at around the 8 minute mark but this soon got trimmed down inadverdently to it’s present 5 minutes or so. I’d personally like it be longer – but given the style I’ve edited this video I think it may have felt a little laborous viewing. I could be wrong, of course – let me know.
But some of the sights I’ve visited of late have truly been an eye-opener and in turn I’ve been inspired to head back with the video camera with other specific projects in mind – some of which will take me some months to complete.
For example, though it does not feature in this video – I’d like to produce a feature on Carl Wark Fort or Arbor Low in more detail capturing the seasonal changes in the landscape along with detailed information about these ancient sites . I simply find them humbling and extremely fascinating upon closer inspection – they add another layer to my enjoyment of the great outdoors.
Truth be told, I’ve collected video from dozens of sites which include flora, fauna and more – and I’d have loved to have edited them into this latest short feature – but somehow I just never quite got round to it. A wonderful sunset from the Cat and Fiddle pub (Britain’s second highest pub), fossils on Parkhouse Hill, various ancient burial mounds, old mosses and rare limestone ferns and more.
All said and done they make great additions to my video library, ready for any other presentations in the coming months.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I have producing it – it’s took me some time to put together despite it’s short running time – and if anything perhaps inspire you to further explore the wonders of the Peak District National Park….
