Using pip to install modules in python failing

I'm having trouble installing python modules using pip. Below is the output from the command window:

Note that I installed pip immediately before trying to install GDAL module.

I am on a w7 64bit machine running python 2.7

I have tried to use easy_install before too, and it came back with a common error to this:

Plus the following additional pip.log:

Answer

This issue looks very similar to Python GDAL package missing header file when installing via pip which seems to have working solution.

Usual problem with python libraries that have CPython extensions is explained here and solution is often:

install library by downloading and running windows binary package.
