It is a Monday morning, so we have to try something totally new, right? After all, what is a Monday if not taking a risk that something will just utterly fail.
The hu-dad, like much of the rest of the “Apple is so Superior to Microsoft” world owns an iPhone. And a friend told him about DerManDar, an ap that let’s you take panoramic pictures with your phone. So, while we were wanting to go romping in what little snow we actually have, we had to stand patiently and wait for him to play with his phone. Ok, actually, we tried to weave the leashes tight around his legs as he tried to hold his phone steady, but after twenty-eleven bazillion attempts, he actually got a couple of pictures to work.
So, now, his goal was to upload the pictures and embed them on the blog. You should be able to use the arrows to scan the panorama.
Picture 1 – our field. Hu-dad scanned looking over at Cataloochee Ski and then passing our favorite tree and then finally the long range view. You can’t see us because we are all wrapped around his legs. (UPDATE – And after making fun of Microsoft, we realized that DerManDar uses Flash to embed the picture – which means products like the iPad can not see the picture. If you do not see a picture, please click here.)
Picture 2 – a view from Thunder Struck Ridge. Our section of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed this time of year, so it is one of our favorite winter spots to walk. Once again, you can’t see us because we are all wrapped his legs as he takes the picture. (Ditto – Can’t see the picture, go here)
Notice that there are no panoramic pictures of us. Apparently the program works best on objects that stay still. We do not qualify.
Do let us know if this works for you (or if it does not, what device you are using to view the post). If this works well, we have a few spots that we want to do 360 degree panoramas
