Golitha Falls in the Snow

Photographs taken 2005

These photographs of Golitha Falls in the snow were taken on 25th November 2005, when we had a very unusual heavy snowfall over Bodmin Moor, that caused chaos up on the A30 that crosses the moor, and several motorists were stranded in their cars. This is not usual for Cornwall in November! However, the snowfall made for some excellent photographic opportunities, as the air was particularly still, the snow was of that delightful stickiness that you can get, and it was clinging to all the branches and twigs of the trees in spectacular fashion!

For more images of Golitha Falls themselves (in fine weather!), have a look at the Golitha Falls page.

Golitha Track in Snow
The path was no doubt one of the old tracks used to access the old Wheal Victoria Copper Mine

Golitha Track in Snow
Still all covered in snow, with still few footprints; it was like some kind of enchanted snowy landscape
from the world of Narnia, just waiting for the Snow Queen to come rattling by on her sleigh!
