Panoramas

Postby Crowth » Wed Jul 28, 2010 3:49 pm

My mobile phone conked out the other week so it was time for a new one. The old one had been in use for over three years, which is a long time for a phone apparently, so I can't complain.

This time around I thought I'd go for an all singing, all dancing phone with bells on. That's exactly what I got. Reading the instruction manual, I realised the camera on this new phone has panoramic capabilities, so I've been testing it out. The picture quality isn't too good at the moment in my hands and I can only post shots with a max width of 800 pixels on here, but you get the idea ;)

Naw bad for a wee camera, but I'm sure the farmer or the owner of the last one will not be to pleased of you publising his scrap yard :roll:.

Thanks Johnny, the new camera is a nice little package giving impressive results from something of that size :)

As for that last pic, I don't care one bit for the feelings of farmers or landowners that allow their properties to be used in such a way. If they are worried about the public perception of their land then they shouldn't let it get into such a state. My thoughts on this sort of land pollution/eyesore are well documented online (see Geograph for example) and I make no apologies at all for highlighting individual cases, inadvertently or otherwise :roll:

Lovely pictures Crowth. Quite a contrast in the last one, what a mess to live beside :shock:

What a shame about that farm on Gigha, such a lovely island, spoilt by the farmer :(

Fortunately the scrap yard cannot be seen from afar, you're not likely to see it unless you stumble across it.

And why did you stumble across it? Bit of flytipping :lol: or lost your bearings :<> .

One thing about them islands is they do not have the roading depot nearby they can drop off the junk hence the problem as seen by your photos. It is better being dumped in one spot as strewn across the island. The council did at one time and may still do go over and do a clearout now and again.
It is on our own doorstep also, you do not need to go to Gigha.

Another pano to add to the collection. I took this one a few weeks before Christmas.

Here's one from yesterday at Saddel. It was a beautiful day and warm enough for me to wander around in shirt sleeves, another example of one of those days when I am reminded how lucky I am to live here.

Crowth, you keep coming out with all these lovely pictures, and what great results from a phone cam, albeit an all singing, all dancing one! And yes, you are lucky to live amidst all that loveliness, wish I did!

Roger: Thanks :D

Number: Thanks, but your praise may be slightly misplaced. It never occurred to me to mention that the last two are the produce of my SLR and some nifty software. In future I'll make that clearer. Sorry for being so remiss :oops:

Crowth, my remarks weren`t just based on the last 2 photos, so what I said still stands.

Here's one I took this morning with my compact. I won't say where this is just yet as there is a certain person who I think will identify it and post the location before anyone else. The time now is 1610.
