Been playing wiv my new toy.....

.....and I love it to bits already. I bought the Samsung Galaxy tablet cuz it matches my mobile phone so I know what a lot of the icons mean. I am fine on my computers and with my camers, but these mobiles and tablets are a complete mystery to me LOL.
It was a dull grey day yesterday but I decided to pop along to one of my favourite places,  a fairly local lake called St Chad's Water. It's only about 3 miles away but it's a beautiful little oasis full of peace and tranquility.  It is off the beaten track, and yet the M1 motorway is just a couple of miles away as the crow flies. I sometimes take my Kindle there to sit in the shade and read, sometimes I just sit and watch the wildfowl doing their own thing.  I used be able to walk around the lake but those days are gone now, although the memories are still there. At least I can still go there and sit, pondering the mysteries of life :o)

Enough waffle now, here are the first two panoramic pics I have taken with my new Tablet!


Daft though it sounds, I have had my little camera, the one I bought to replace my stolen on, over two years now and never got around to looking at the panoramic funtion on it, so I decided to have a go with that one too, and voila, it worked a treat. If I hadn't bought the tablet I may never have discovered it. The pics I took with that one are still in the camera so not shown here. I had some strange notion that to take panoramic pics with it, I would have to take them then try aligning them to fit them together. For those of you think along the same lines, not so, it is sooooooooooooooooo easy to take them as the camera has guides on screen and tells you if you go out of them :o)

Great landscape photos Jackie, funnily enough it's a function I always forget on my camera as well.

Please you are linking your tablet, but like you it's the desktop for blogging.

Wow Jackie.... you've certainly mastered the tablet.. these panoramas are fabulous! And how lovely to have a nice little spot to go 'sit and ponder'... I think one of those would do us all good!

Great pic and thanks for jogging my brain. I can take the panoramic pics too on my tablet and totally forgot. So excited to try when I get home. Yup...I'm back at the beach but heading home this morning after stopping by the university to see my youngest son and drop him off some goodies....oh...and get some hugs !
