Dramatic Drops & Stunning Scenery , Kinder Scout Is In Your Face! The New Video From Peak District TV Shows Derbyshire In New Light.

A stunning new masterpiece of videography Viagra, Terrybnd is proving a force of nature is right up his street,or should we say mountain? The man and his camera have blown away the competition -- a storm's a brewing in The Peak District ........

Peak District Online are very proud to present their new video introducing the Peak District to the uninitiated. Kinder Scout -- the highest point in this beautiful region of our country is depicted in deliciously appetising delight.

Set to a staggeringly beautiful soundtrack, the spectacular Kinder Scout is shown in all weathers, all terrains are covered, all seasons promised. We're amazed from the offset, as the clouds and the skies tumble past with the piano accompaniment lulling us into a false sense of security until the musi c blasts in, the gritstone wall hits us in the face, the camera soaring over the top. How this scene is captured we'll never know -- just one man and his video camera, one man and the forces of nature. The panorama is flabbergasting , a sight not a lot of us will ever see but Terry takes us there, we are there.

To climb this mountain you need your wits about you, the graves and the crashed aircraft wreckage testament to its treachery, its turbulent weather, its dangerous crags and rocky outcrops shown in breathtaking prominence- hitting us right between the eyes!




The perfectly timed strains of music coincide with insightful knowledge written in short bursts across the screen, tempting and teasing us with little bits of information we would never know, the height, the beauty, the majesty that is Kinder Scout. The views from the top are unimaginable and would never be seen by the elderly, the infirm or our little ones.

Watching this video we are transported there -this way we can all experience it first hand. The views from the top are mesmerising. The sculpture park of gritstone tors litter the area, formed millenniums ago casting an eerie prehistoric feel on the bed of a vast river delta. A conservation area, a wildlife habitat -- outstanding beauty indeed. Terry really knows his stuff and now so do we!

We glimpse the wild mountain hare, the colourful grouse in a mixture of fast paced energy and slow motion beauty. The haunting vocals kick in at the setting of the sun and the shadows cast their eerie glow on the rock formations, the trickling waters, only hinting at the true nature of Kinder Force -- a small trickle captured here in Summer but in Winter a waterfall sight to behold.

Kinder scout is indeed a dramatic and dangerous place but it is also a thing of beauty to be experienced first hand. If it's not possible to visit then this is the next best thing. This video is gorgeous -- check it out for yourself. I'm lacing up my boots as speak.......
