It’s Monday! Time for Sally’s weekly Phoneography challenge. Today, I’d like to share with you a photo taken on a recent walk to the spectacular Saugatuck Dunes State Park. This 2.5 mile stretch of unspoiled shoreline along Lake Michigan is the ideal spot for hiking. On the day we went, the weather was perfect. The sun was warm and inviting, so we could ignore the cool breezes that swirled around us. We joined a handful of visitors who walked their dogs, which romped in the sand and through the shallow water.
Here’s a close-up shot of a piece of driftwood, which cast interesting shadows on the sand. The first image is without the grain filter.
The second shot has the grain filter. Which one do you prefer and why? Or, do you think the filter adds little to the shot?
Thanks again to Sally for challenging us to explore the limits of our cell phone cameras, which can deliver surprisingly good quality as well as convenience.
