With the right light
and a phone
you can do anything.
I travel less with my big camera these days, and not only because it’s heavy to carry and awkward to pack. The software/filters in phone cameras get better with every new model. Some casual photos from Calgary illustrate the point.
I waited for the amaryllis bloom to be in full sunshine, and the only detail my phone missed was the crystalline structure of what I think is called the trifid stigma–that 3-part white bit. (Here’s someone who caught it nicely by working a lot harder than I did.)
And then there were the skies . . .
Having that photographic range in something I have to carry around anyway is truly a miracle.
