Now Presenting "Nuclear Sunrise"

My first effort at sun-soaked photography was such a hit, I had to follow it up with a more optimistic take on things, hence 'Nuclear Sunrise,' a reminder that even after our darkest hours another day is in the offing with hope for blue skies and clear breeze and a chance to make things right.

At least that's how I read the pale light and more modest saturation as compared to Sunset. What's amazing is that the extremely simple camera on the G1 can easily handle what is a technically difficult shot with more advanced cameras. The automated aperture and shutter speed adjustment works pretty well as long as there is plenty of light. In lowlight conditions the iPhone camera performs much better, which must be a testament to some built in gain in addition to the slow shutter speed featured on both phones' cameras.
