I just read an article that calculated the angular field of view of the IPhone 6 camera. This came in at a remarkable 63.54 degrees – wow! No wonder whenever I want to take cloud photographs, I am likely to grab for my IPhone 6 even if my Canon T2i is on hand. It’s no fuss no muss shooting, and if necessary, HDR is easy to implement.
It was no exception this past Saturday when I was in Concord, Massachusetts and saw these glorious Cumulus clouds behind the Trinitarian Congregational Church on Walden Street (Yes as in The Pond). One of the great things about Concord is that almost every building you look at is historic. The Trinitarian Congregational is almost two hundred years old and its member played a key role in the abolitionist movement and the underground railroad of the 1850’s.
One of the other Iphun points about the IPhone camera is that it lends itself to the creation of antique postcard like snapshots. That was what this image reminded me of, after I gave it an Autochrome like color palette.
