Second video of four guys , we have tried to pick a lot of key points in here but as most of you will know to cover it all, you would need a feature length film to do it .

Miles any inaccuracies on access let me know and I can re edit if you wish.

Pleased you enjoyed it , I though the bit of Welsh was a nice touch, as all you Welsh guys have always been very helpful to us in the past.

Thumbs Up

Hi Paul,
First time I have watched a slate mine video, well done it was very impressive.
I think it would be helpful, if you might add a bit of descriptive text to say what was what, as I had no idea of usome of the things you were videoing.
Eg the railed decline, the crane? Etc.
Thanks and keep up the good photos.

Hi John

Thanks for your input, in my early stuff I used to label things more but soon got told labeling the obvious was a bit silly, so unless it is something that needs to be explained I leave it out, the giant staircase on this video was the exception as it is a major part of this mine . You have to remember it is so easy to bore people with videos and I really have to edit our clips HARD to keep the time frame down. I also have a lot more stills I could add in but then it turns out like a slide show so I save my better stills for competitions and calendars etc.
You must have watched lots of videos yourself and got bored with them. When I am editing if it bores me its going to bore others. There will be two more north wales videos soon when I get them finished .

Paul
