Photo of the day: Longmire Suspension Bridge

It's amazing just how well my iPhone takes pictures -- if the conditions are just right. Give it dim light or any movement, and the photos look like they were taken by a quarter-inch-thick piece of electronics with an eighth-of-an-inch lens. But bright landscapes can be surprisingly decent. Here, I experimented with the camera's HDR feature, which did a nice job on the high-contrast snowy scenery and saturated the colors on the bridge nicely. It's nice to have such a camera in my pocket when I don't happen to have the larger and heavier SLR along.

Here's another I like almost as well of the Mountain in sunlight and the foreground in shadow. I took this picture specifically to see how well the HDR would compensate. It's not perfect, but it does an amazingly good job considering what it has to work with. And it's actually a lot easier than setting up my SLR with a tripod and then using software to generate the HDR...
