Since late 2019 I've been doing a lot of hiking in the Catskills with a good buddy of mine.
Much of the photography I've done there has been casual iPhone (11 Pro & 12 Pro Max) photography, since our first priority has been hiking rather than photography. So most of the images here were taken at mid-day, rather than in the best light, and more for documentary purposes than artistic ones.
Overall the iPhone does a decent-to-good job, especially considering its size & weight, but it's far below the capabilities of a modern full-frame camera. But, as the saying goes, "the best camera is the one you have with you".
I do carry my larger Nikon Z7 system & lenses on occasion though.
During the hot/ buggy summers, we've started biking along many of the beautiful brooks, rather than hiking. New images, shot with my Z7, are from Summer 2021 biking trips along the Beaverkill and Dry Brook.
