Stop the Car...

There used to be days when you'd see something and think 'I wish I had my camera with me'. This was one of those days. This was the scene at almost 4 o'clock in the afternoon recently. Driving down a long, straight local road, I looked to my right and saw this wonderful view - the sunlight beaming above the clouds into the deep blue sky, like a powerful torch, and the golden light below the clouds as the sun started to drop towards the horizon. The separation of blue and gold colours seemed almost impossible, but there it was. But, aargh... no camera!

Oh well, I thought, at least I got to stop and see it. But then I remembered - my iPhone!!

Cameras in phones have come a long way since the early days, and the quality of the pictures you can now take is fantastic. And whoever it was that first thought of putting a camera in a phone should take a bow. What a great invention, that allows us to relive those moments that otherwise would be just a memory.
