SPECTACULAR VIDEO OF CORNISH COASTLINE GOES VIRAL
7 April 2014
Breathtaking video footage of the Cornish coast shot from a remote control drone has become a Youtube hit after being published on the site over the last few days.
The video, shot on the north coast of Cornwall near Newquay, has been viewed almost half a million times in the last 24 hours alone.
The video, which runs for just under three minutes shows why so many people come to stay at holiday cottages in Cornwall every year.
The footage captures the picturesque north coast at its most beautiful and is carefully edited together to show sunrise, sunset and the hours in between.
The drone flies around headland, over beaches and alongside cliffs, capturing on camera dramatic panning shots of the spectacular coastline as waves break against it.
Viewers have been stunned by the crystal clear HD footage, which needed little enhancement thanks to the beauty of the natural scenery.
Social networks have also been quick to pick up on the video, and it has been posted and shared on Facebook and Twitter thousands of times.
The footage was posted on YouTube by a user calling themselves Mon0bLE.
