Spiderman @ Stainmore Summit

Since I took lots of Amazing Spiderman 2 Morphsuit photos, during the drive to Glasgow on the Sunday. So during the drive back down south. I had to stop and take even more!!

This time, I found a old Second World War Pillbox to use! Which is near highish point of the A66, at Stainmore Summit. Just to show, that I was really at the Stainmore Summit. I also took a photo, next to the sign!!

Nick and Margaret: The Trouble with Our Trains (BBC 2/HD | 9:00pm to 10:00pm | Wednesday 29th April 2015)

Nick Hewer and Margaret Mountford climb on board Britain’s trains to find out whether they offer value for money. On the trail of the £8 billion of fares and £4 billion of public money that go into the nation’s trains each year, they discover a rail system that is struggling to contend with outdated infrastructure and more passengers than at any time in living memory. Twenty years on from privatisation, Nick and Margaret are in for a bumpy ride as they meet irate commuters, polished train operating company bosses and the head of Network Rail. They unearth some mind-boggling bureaucracy and infuriating inefficiency, but also ask if there are signs of hope that the railway may be getting back on track.

W1A (BBC 2/HD | 10:00pm to 10:30pm | Thursday 30th April 2015)

The advertising of a new and important role – namely, the head of better – leads to a game of management musical chairs. Anna Rampton, head of output, thinks she knows all about better and goes for the top job. Top of the agenda for the damage limitation team are rumours that Newsnight anchor Evan Davis is to be a contestant in the forthcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing, which does not go down well with head of news and current affairs Neil Reid. Things get more complicated when it transpires that BBC brand consultant Siobhan Sharpe is behind it. It falls to Ian Fletcher as head of BBC values and arch-limiter of damage to find an elegant solution to the problem. Meanwhile, ex-intern Will Humphries, recently appointed PA to the head of values, makes life more difficult for Izzy, the object of his desire. He accidentally hijacks her computer software while showing off his newly acquired training on the BBC’s foolproof software Syncapatico.

The Last Leg (Channel 4/HD | 10:00pm to 11:05pm | Thursday 30th April 2015)

The award-winning gang show returns live to Channel 4 for a hat trick of topical shenanigans, culminating in an election night extravaganza. Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker are back to take on the main talking points of the week including all the latest election news. After Alex Brooker fired the starting gun in the race to rid political campaigning of ‘bullshit’ during his hilarious interview with Nick Clegg, the team reunite at this crucial time with their upbeat, unjaundiced brand of satirical comedy. Their guests include Jeremy Paxman.

Slow Train Through Africa with Griff Rhys-Jones (itv/HD | 9:00pm to 10:00pm | Friday 1st May 2015)

Griff Rhys Jones makes five remarkable train journeys across the world’s most spectacular continent. In this episode, Griff takes the train through Zambia and Zimbabwe, via one of the most stunning natural wonders of the world – the Victoria Falls. He begins the 1,100-mile trip in Kasama in northern Zambia where the train arrives just 33 hours late. In Zambia’s capital Lusaka, Griff reveals the reason the first railways were built – to get at Zambia’s rich mineral wealth. The old railway was the dream of Cecil Rhodes, who wanted to join all Britain’s African colonies over a hundred years ago with a line that would run from South Africa to Egypt. It was never completed, but its greatest legacy is a bridge that spans the Zambezi gorge right next to the Victoria Falls. From here, Griff crosses into Zimbabwe. On the train heading south, Griff meets more friendly folk before arriving at Zimbabwe’s second city Bulawayo, which was once the main railway hub for southern Africa.

Found another great place to walk!

Updated National Cycle Network section : 24/04/2015

I have just updated the National Cycle Network sub section of my website. By adding a new section for NCR 71.

I took these photos while on holiday, in Lake District.





More photos from this set can be found at www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/days-out/07-04-2015/

More Rangers football kit photos!

Here are even more photos of myself out wearing my Rangers football kit! I do really need to get the socks that go with it!

The main reason for today’s photos, is that I wanted to give my new Manfrotto Befree Compact Travel Tripod, which I got today. A good try out! It’s the first full sized tripod, I’ve ever had, that I can fit in a normal walking bag. It’s closed length is only 40cm, when my old one was 65cm! Only down side, is it’s weight which is 1.7 kg. I could have got a lighter one, then would have had to pay a lot more than £119 for it (full price was £139)!

Hope you all enjoy these photos, can’t wait to read all the comments about them!!!

Video: Driving to work, not so fast!

Another video of myself driving from Little Bytham to the Peterborough Greyhounds, my place of work. All thanks to video time lapse, using my Garmin VIRB Elite action camera.

During this video, I set the time lapse interval to every 1/2 seconds. Then used Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11.0 to speed the video up a bit.

Was hoping to take the same route, has last time. But King Street, was closed at West Deeping. So had to go via Langtoft. Which is where, I am in traffic queue for a bit. Around 28 seconds into the video.

But still got to work on time, which is of course the main thing!

Love wearing my Rangers football kit!

Got to say, I love wearing my Rangers football kit! Also love that, I can walk around in it and no one even gives you a second look. Unless they support another team of course!! lol 🙂

Hope you all enjoy these photos, can’t wait to read all the comments about them!!!


Video: Driving to work in record time!

Driving from Little Bytham to the Peterborough Greyhounds, my place of work in record time! All thanks to video time lapse, using my Garmin VIRB Elite action camera.

I am just playing around with time lapse. Since, next time I drive to Scotland. I am hoping to film the whole journey.

During this video, I set the time lapse interval to every 2 seconds. Will try every 1 second the next time.
