I hate being without a camera, and I'm almost never in a situation where I don't have one close by. But, last week, while on a quick little jaunt to central Colorado, I came across an absolutely amazing scene, and my camera was 100 miles away, tucked into a suitcase.
But I had my Droid, and truthfully, I've been pretty impressed by the phone's ability to take some decent shots, albeit in a very controlled environment. I wasn't sure how it would perform at about 20 degrees with morning light burning through thick lake fog over Blue Mesa Reservoir.
While the images don't do the scene justice, they are fairly decent, considering the medium. Had I even had a point-and-shoot, I could have manipulated better images, but I'll take these for what they are. If you're in a pinch and want to capture the memory, the camera on your cell phone can work if you're dogged enough to shoot enough photos and be patient with the light. See for yourself.
