    Hi all,

    I've been out with my video camera and wife and we have done an exploration of the surface workings of the abandoned Groverake fluorspar mine in Rookhope, County Durham, link below. I would also ask if anybody knows of any other good, easily accessible mines in the area we could do more programs like this about?. Anyway, please enjoy, and leave any relivent comments please. Also, if you have any further info on the mine, please let me know, especially if you have personal experiences :eek:)

    Best regards,

    Steve

    Okay. This is my personal opinion on "video Only" explores. Seems to me that videos are nice when they tie together the explore, giving you an overall sense of where certain shots were taken. Some videos can make it hard to see what's the focus of the scene (& make some people little queasy)due to camera movement/shake. Having a picture lets one "explore" the details of the shot, plus some pics make a really cool wallpaper for PERSONAL USE ONLY (don't know how peeps feel about that, but some shots just beg for the "Full Monty" ...:p: ). Understand about schlepping around all the extra gear for stills and video. On the other hand, some drone videos (aerial) are really superb! (yah, getting pics from a drone's point-of-view may just be a wee bit hard to get :rolleyes:)
    once again, personal opinion / preference, not making any judgement calls. Everybody has their own style of exploring from armchair exploring ('moi:popcorn)to wandering around up on Blackpool Tower, or jumping off the Burj Khalifa Tower (formerly Burj Dubai) http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/31738-The-Burj-Dubai-Dubai-April-2008 (RIP Downfallen)

    'kay, semi rant over, carry on ... :D

    p.s. those security cows give ya any trouble, mate?

    Lol, nope, the cows were very well behaved, can't say the same for the wife though lol.

    Yes, we actually did not intend to go there that day, we were filming nearby and I said we should finally do it so, I was not armed with my tripod and I'd forgot to activate the stabaliser on the camera, or I would have done both still and panning shots :eek:) I will rememdy this for next time, although I do still have one exploration video to put up that was shot over a year ago :eek:) I did take pictures and I think next time, I will do my stills too, present some of them in the video and put them in the associated post in the forum and link through from the video :eek:)

    Thanks for the advice,

    regards,

    Steve

    That's some very shaky camera work you've got there.
