For a long time I had a mediocre flip-phone. Last autumn it crapped out on me, and got replaced with a truly cheap flip phone ($14, WalMart). My phone contract provides for a new phone every two years, and that time came at the beginning of March. So, I finally got a smart phone-type-phone thingie, a Nokia something-or-other. As it turns out, it actually takes reasonably fair photos, though not nearly as good as you get from a *real* camera. Behold:

The moon just behind the Wasatch range a few nights back, lighting up the clouds.

A little while back some weather blew through late at night. Under the full moon, the clouds looked pretty interesting. Not all the photos, however, were terribly well composed. One in particular was the result of accidentally setting off the shutter release while still setting up the tripod.

 

Around 1 AM this morning I became aware that a lightning storm was passing by. Sadly, it was a fast mover; by the time I got my camera set up taking photos, it was all over. Still, a *few* interesting photos out of the process, though no good lightning shots.

Some photos from January showing a small helicopter flying along the Wasatch mountains.

Combine frigid temperatures and the right kind of ice crystals in the air, and you get the relatively rare phenomenon of “light pillars,” vertical shafts of light over bright ground lights (including car headlights).
