Above the Clouds, Clips from a Plane.

A couple of clips I have uploaded to YouTube which can also be seen here, that were filmed during my recent flight from Manchester to Venice. The first clip is of the Alps mountain range between France and Italy. The 2nd clip was recorded after a major change in the weather approx. 15 minutes before our descent in to Marco Polo Airport, Venice.


They were filmed using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera on Monday 29th October 2018.

Stairs, Hotel San Marco Palace, Venice.

Whilst in Venice I stayed at the San Marco Palace Hotel, this post is not a review of the hotel, it is to show 2 pictures I took of the staircase at the hotel which was absolutely fantastic. Like most things in Venice it appeared to have been marble (It looked it to me but I have no idea) and formed a fantastic centre piece to the part of the hotel we were staying in. As I have already said this is not a review but I was very happy with the hotel, it was clean and the staff were always helpful and pleasant. I would happily recommend it as a place to stay. 

The pictures were taken using my Sony Experia phone. They can be seen without tags and un-watermarked only on Clickasnap via the links below the pictures.



We were on the fifth floor which was 100 steps from the bottom, there is a lift alongside the staircase.

Take off from Manchester Airport

Take off from Manchester Airport is a short video showing the take off from inside the plane near the wing of a recent flight we took from Manchester to Marco Polo Airport, Venice, Italy. The clip shows the planes run from the end of the runway until levelling off in the sky. I had to ask my wife to film it because I don not like flying and I don't like heights either,

It was filmed on the 29th October 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera.

It is taken from my YouTube account were I show slideshows of my images or short driving clips, etc.

Flying, Pictures and Videos from Above

Recently I took a short trip to Venice, Italy flying from Manchester Airport. It's fair to say that flying is something I do not enjoy, I can't quite get my head around the fact that this great lumbering mass somehow manages to float through the air. I also do not like heights so I spend most of the trips staring at the seat in front trying my best to ignore the view, always being told by my wife I don't know what I am missing. On this occasion I asked her to film parts of the flight and take a couple of pictures which can be seen below. The best quality versions of the images can be seen on Clickasnap via the links below each picture.

They were taken using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera on Monday 29th October 2018.




I'll post the videos of the flight in separate post's.

Square Church Spire. (2018)

Square Church Spire is all that remains of Square Congregational Church, Halifax. Built alongside the Piece Hall in an area of Halifax known as the Square, the church opened on the 15th July 1857, it replaced the nearby Georgian Square Chapel which then became the Sunday school for the church. The church was used for worship until closure in 1970, and the main building was destroyed by fire in January 1971 and demolished in 1976 leaving only the Grade II listed 235ft high spire. The spire now forms part of the Halifax Central Library.

I have 5 pictures of the spire that can be viewed on Flickr, Here and Clickasnap.

Brighouse Railway Station, West Yorkshire. (August 2018)

This set of pictures was taken in August 2018 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. The pictures below are taken from my Flickr photo stream, there are an additional 2 available from this set also on Clickasnap via the links below.

Brighouse Railway Station was originally opened on the 5th October 1840 as Brighouse and Bradford. Upon opening there was no trains in to Bradford until the line via Halifax opened in 1854, the station was also known as Brighouse for Rastrick. The original station was closed on the 3rd January 1970 when the 6.53pm London King Cross to Bradford passed through and demolished shortly after. The station was reopened at it's original location on the 29th May 2000, nearby Elland was supposed to have a new station open at the same time, this is now expected to be 2022 at the earliest with an estimated cost of £22 million. Only 22 years late, kind of reminds you of the old British rail, we may be late but we get there eventually.
