Cell phone SkyWatching

 Forgetting to take your decent camera everywhere is not always a bad thing.  
Cameras on mobile phones these days are pretty good - especially when you remember you actually have one in your bag.
Here are some random and not-at-all perfect shots of skies around Alberta over the past few weeks.
I have only straightened and cropped the photos, and then rubbed out the splattered bugs on windscreens!  No other special effects.
Not bad for a little camera, eh?
Have a lovely SkyWatching week.


  1. No indeed!! Not bad at all! These are gorgeous captures! And what awesome skies! Isn't it wonderful when we can see such beautiful sights and capture them for always!! Thanks for sharing the beauty! Have a great weekend!

  2. Not bad at all. Very wonderfully captured :)

  3. Even mobile phone camera's are getting better these days, they are great shots and thanks for sharing:)

  4. Beautiful skies!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  5. They don't call Alberta "Big Sky Country" for nothing!

  6. Very nice! I sometimes wish I had a good cellphone, the camera in mine is pathetic.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Hope you'd come and see my sky shots also. Your comment will be greatly appreciated.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Yup... these compare favorably with some of the best DSLR shots! Phone cameras are amazing these days.

  9. Hello fellow Albertan!!!

    I really like the sweeping vista with the meandering river. Camera phones do take some fabulous photos. My husband's iPhone has captured some of the nicest photos, even compared with my own little Nikon. At least you always have a camera at hand and your photos are nothing to scoff at.


  10. The skies just go on forever out there!! Good thing you took the bugs out, though!!

  11. You have had some lovely skies of late. Your celly really goes take good photos!


Sorry humans, but I have had to reintroduce the word verificatin thing again due to an inordinate amount of crappy spam.
