Speaking to the camera while on a walk, Martin explained that he was feeling grateful to be out and about. "I've come out for a walk to my favourite place in the world, to a waterfall near where I live. It's the first time I've ventured out since I got home. It's taken me three times as long as it normally would to get here. You can't help but think 'I'm really lucky to see this' because I might not have seen it again.
