We went and saw a juggling act the other night.
No flash photography was allowed.  I thought for a cell phone this turned out well enough.

More cellphone photography ... from the Footshills Parkway.






From Cade's Cove ... cellphone photography does have its limits . That black dot near the tree is a black bear from about 100 yards away....




Nice rainbow though...



Mingus Mill ...


Wylie coyote....


Stream somewhere on Little River Road ...



Fun from the Smokies.  Was there 3 times last week.  Me and the wife for two days.  Me and the wife drove the in-laws to Cade's Cove on Friday.   And I rode my scooter through on Saturday.  Blessed to be near enough to take day trips there.

Good shots. I've always enjoyed driving through those mountains.

I'm also glad to see that I'm not the only person that takes pictures of dead trees!

Those are nice.  I like dead tree pics, too.

The reason I started this thread was to show that despite those elitists who maintain that the only camera worthy of being called a camera is a DSLR, cell phone cameras can take very nice pics.  True, you probably wouldn't use one to take the presidential portrait, but when it's the only camera you have at the moment, it works very well.  And the technology is continually developing.  There are now some clip on lenses that allow wider angle shots, optical zoom range beyond the built-in lens, and lots of apps that allow more control of the camera beyond simply pointing and shooting.

More from Relections Lake.  We were at Reflections Lake recently, just before the leaves all popped out.  That's not the lake in the background.  It's the Knik River, just upstream of where it empties into the Knik Arm of Cook Inlet.  I am always amazed at how good the camera is in the iPhone 6S Plus.

Great pictures, Ron.  I love Cades Cove but hate the time it takes to get through. 

Looks peaceful, Greg.

I too like dead tree pictures.

If you walk through there now with the leaves out, it has a totally different look to it.



Hmmm, something didn't get included here, and now I don't remember what it was or how it didn't make it on my post.

I was laying on the floor doing some exercises while Jasper was outside.  He loves to be outside in the morning because that's when our squirrel, Imelda shows up for breakfast.  He likes to hide and wait for her.  He never ever goes after her and she's not afraid of him.   I never let them get close as I'm worried one would hurt the other.   I saw him hiding out and grabbed my phone.  I took this one upside down.

Here's what our back yard looks like at 11PM in mid-June.  Still a sunny day out.








And finally, a view from the front porch showing the sun, just above the horizon.  It would be higher, but for the tall trees.  Not bad for 11PM.

I love how light it stays late! (even for us)  Just not sure I'd like the amount of dark you all get.  I guess you take the good with the bad!

Fried green tomatoes--love 'em.

Yes, we do love the extended daylight in the summer.  Wintertime is a different story, but after awhile you get used to the extended dark.  Most of the time it's a bit cold to get out and do stuff anyway unless one is into snow machining or skiing.  We are not into either.  It doesn't bother us anymore.

Ok... one cell phone photo.

Down at the "farmer's" market yesterday.

0.70  translates into about 78 US.

I agree that the cell phone cameras are pretty spectacular nowadays, but I disagree that all you have is a shutter button. There are actually many different settings and tricks to improve your photos.

Yes, Apple has incorporated some neat controls, but for the sake of those who  want a little more than just point and shoot function, they have added some things.  Still, there's no provision for controlling shutter speed, ISO and aperture.  The camera does all that for you, just as in the most basic of compact digital cameras.  I can't fault the quality of the iPhone images, though.  There are also some cool apps out there that can enhance the iPhone camera's capability, as well.  I had a Samsung Galaxy phone that was horrible as a phone due to its erratic behavior, but it had a great camera.  I believe it was a 16mp camera and the images were very sharp.  There were some issues with it, though, like serious shutter lag, for one, that was particularly bothersome.  We ditched the Galaxies and went back to the iPhone with no regrets.

Thanks.  I'm afraid my "weedology" is sadly lacking.  I know a tulip, a rose or a carnation when I see it.

Greg,

I guess celebrations that come with fireworks would run quite late into the night ... thinking of times like the 4th of July and the like.

Unless it's overcast, the 4th of July fireworks display doesn't pack quite the effect that they would if it's dark.  But we still turn out to watch.  Actually, they set them off in the park just below where we live, so we can sort of see them over the tops of the trees.  If you look at that middle picture, that's where we see them.  If it's a sunny day without clouds, that's also about how dark it is, too.

I took the critter (Hairy) to the park this AM to water the trees and saw that the morning's light was streaming through the heads of these agriocharto psiloh (ψηλό αγριόχορτο). As I had my trusty $150 Chinese knockoff with me I thought to make an entry here.

These grow along an arroyo that drains the mountain and reach as high as 4 feet with leaves the size of Thanksgiving day platters.
