Can you believe this was taken with an iPhone?

Can you believe this was taken with an iPhone 3gs camera? This is one of my favorite scenes at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Snapped while taking a break from jogging.

    Keep walking up that trail, and up the hill, and you run into my work building!

    Where is the Chattahoochee River? The region reminds me a lot of the various places I walk around at home.

    With that said, the iPhones definitely does take amazing photographs. My girlfriend is an avid photographer herself, but on occasion she can leave her bulky camera at home and just keep her phone on her for taking pictures. This actually happened yesterday as she and my family went into New York City for the day. She asked “should I take my camera?” Generally I like keeping photographs of “big events” (like going into the city). I decided it was unnecessary to lug around though, because the iPhone takes great pictures. It is actually one of the features it has that makes it very worthwhile to purchase.

      Chris, it’s near Atlanta. This particular area is north in the suburbs. I am still amazed at this pic, can’t stop staring at it. I’m also glad I took this because I just went by the same area the other day and it looks like they are doing construction there.
