My first photos with an iPhone 5: Monterosso (Cinque Terre)

What a disaster can a splash of sea water be for a camera! And so it was, that I headed for Monterosso only equipped with my Nikon FM2n, only to realise, and only there, that a recent splash of sea water had made it unusable.

A whole day in a beautiful place without a camera?, I thought. Wait a sec!, I have an iPhone 5 with me!,  I eventually realised, unaccustomed to the idea. Well, these are my first shots taken with it!

So it seems that not all losses come without a gain, because I had the chance to familiarise myself with this new “camera”.

I did not expect such clarity from a “telephone”.
