Default Foggy views

While out today, we came across some low lying fog, and well pending on how you want to look at it, the bad news is that I didn't have my DSLR camera, but I remembered that my mobile has a camera built in.

The below pictures were taken with the phone camera.

Sorry it's taken me so long to start posting pictures, but Uni has been keeping me busy.

Ahh the power of the mobile phone with an in-built camera. I've been having fun with it too but with the RTA and bridge building .

That's the beauty of it. I've found it quite useful on occasions, especially as hubby likes taking off with the digital camera or when we've forgotten said camera, especially if it's involving Junior or if Junior has found something good.

My last phone had a camera in it but I couldn't download although I could email to Yahoo addy. At least with this phone, I can add a memory card to it plus it has a USB cable which means I can now download to my computer without too many problems, hurray or go to the local photo shop and download there if for example I'm visiting rellies etc. Bluetooth helps too!

Think you did pretty well with it, even with the camera shakes

The full landscape ones are really nice, esepcially the last and first one and espcially for a telephone camera, amazing. Of course there had to be cables there... darn. But if it hadn't been for the telegraph pole the pic might have looked like you were actually above the clouds This is the picture the light is best in but for the pole it could have been a great picture and having your SLR maybe even a stunning one.

The first snapshot is funny because of the little fuzzy animal in the corner

The rest is nice for the family album but more than OK for a telephone.

Thanks Hans, I'm happy with the way they came out, for a camera phone, I must try and remember to use it more... believe it or not, I forget that my phone has a camera.

Very good quality, indeed, like you said, all things considered. Judging from the shots that show the road, I guess pulling over and getting out was not an option. That's the only thing that might have helped. But I know what it's like to not want to stop, "just to snap a pic."

I think I like the second one the best, even with the pole and cables in the pic. It looks like a fluffy blanket covering the land. And kudos to your camera phone. I also forget that my phone has a camera and have driven by some beautiful landscapes without snapping a pic.
