Walkers find their feet for festival along the Fal
Bejewelled on either side in swathes of lilac, gold and emerald, the Fal River glides through the Cornish countryside.
Every year thousands of walkers enjoy ambling along the riverside – and its popularity shows no sign of waning.
A hundred people pulled on their boots to take part in the start of the second Fal River Autumn Walking Festival.
There are due to be more than 50 walks from the Roseland to Helford, up to November 4.

Tommy Tonkins, festival organiser, said: "The walk was fantastic, with breathtaking views and beautiful scenery.
"It was a chance for us to meet all of the event's supporters properly and to let them know how grateful we are."
Jennie Trevithick, a walker from Mylor Yacht Harbour, said: "What an amazing way to start this festival. If it's a sign of what's to come it's going to be really enjoyed by a great deal of people.
"It was lovely to see children on the launch walk, as well as dogs, with everyone having a good time."
The route began and ended at the Nare Hotel which helped sponsor the event and gave walkers high tea.
Toby Ashworth, the hotel's owner, said: "The walk from Nare Head is one of the most stunning walks on the south coast in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty."
