Was out for a walk and noticed the colors in the clouds were kind of matching the reddish color of stone/brick wall containing the river.

Yes this is my cellphone, I was making my exercise walking rounds and this was going on.

Cellphone frame, no cropping. Yes a little Lightroom balancing the foreground and clouds, but a jpeg image from the camera.

Same spot, vertical full cellphone frame. Yes the grasses and riverbed were pulled up in lightroom and the clouds had to dropped a little bit, but again, cellphones can take beautiful photographs.

Again, I did lighten up the building some, much more than the above river shot.

But a cellphone can be used skillfully, just as I am sure Ansel Adams or Edwards played with the children and pinhole box cameras in their day.

These birds are hard to get near,but this one took a nice pose so you can se the frigging big tail! It fan folds and when they fly it flattens out.

Easy to see why my flying birds look weird.
