The best camera…

They always say the best camera is the one you have with you – in this case an iPhone4 which enabled me to capture the moment when a summer storm swept in.

Given the huge contrast in the scene – a sunlit field in the foreground and lowering skies in the background – I think it coped pretty well.

The barely visible white specks in the images are seagulls which were attracted to the base of the storm, though I’ve no idea why.

I think this sequence of shots shows that cameras in mobiles have come a long way in a very short time.

While they’re never going to replace high-end digital SLRs, there’s a lot to be said for portability and convenience especially for fleeting moments of beauty like those provided by our capricious weather.

Portability and convenience allied to real-time data will, I believe, also make mobiles primary devices for news consumption in years to come – though there are still many obstacles.

Best of all from this weekend stroll in the countryside – I managed to stay dry!
