I have been participating in the Big Picture Classes phone photography class. It's been very interesting to see the pictures....really beautiful pictures....that people have been capturing with their phones. Most of the pictures are tweaked somehow with various photo-editing apps, but still they are pretty amazing. I rarely take my big DSLR with me hiking any more, mostly because of the dust and dirt involved, but I always have my phone in my pocket.
One of the assignments last week was to try to photograph light in some way. I started with this one I took of the sun going down behind the mountain next to the cabin. It's fire season here in Idaho and we had smoke in the air from a couple of different fires that gave this one kind of an interesting look. Yes, I've fiddled with saturation some here.
These others were taken on one of those early morning hikes my husband and I have been on recently. You can see the trail we're hiking on and the grass to either side is as tall as my shoulders.
The sun was coming up over the mountain and was just starting to shine over that same tall grass on the hillside.
Pretty morning. I had a much harder time with the "Action" prompt we were given. A lot of that is because the only member of the family who is much interested in doing something action-oriented is Ollie, and even he's thinking it's been too hot to get too excited about that.
