Photo Focus – iPhone Treasures in Graeagle

IMG_1457

There are few things more frustrating than missing a great shot because your big DSLR camera isn’t locked-and-loaded or is back in the hostel safe. I don’t typically travel with my iPhone (for fear of losing it), but boy-oh-boy I think I’m going to start.

While enjoying my family vacation last week in Graeagle, CA (about an hour north of Truckee) I found that some of my favorite shots were taken with my phone. This isn’t due to perfect composition or exposure, but rather the candidness of the subjects and scenes. I would have missed Lady’s first interaction with a giant white dog (read: horse) if it hadn’t been so easy to pull the phone out of my pocket and hold it over her head. Slap a filter on that bad boy and it was good-to-go!

So take a look around and, if you like what you see, keep an eye out for an upcoming post featuring the Gray Eagle Lodge, a dog-friendly mountain oasis that has been my second home for 24 summers.

    I’m in the Graeagle area every summer. It’s so beautiful up there. The Feather River is amazing but can be dangerous.
