    I got caught with a thunderstorm overhead and got these two shots.
    The good news is it had not started raining yet.
    The bad news is I didn’t have my camera.
    But…I had a “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” iPhone6-PLUS with me.
    Hand-holding it up overhead at about a 60* angle, surprised they turned out at all.
    Temperature dropped from 89* to 70* is no time...very cool wind blowing through.
    ( I assume it’s OK to share these here for what they’re worth, novelty of it, etc. )

    Nice! As much as some people like to pooh-pooh phone cameras, many of the most iconic images taken in the 20th century were taken with cameras that couldn't hold a candle to the capabilities of an iPhone 6+.
