Since late 2019 I've been doing a lot of hiking in the Catskills with a good buddy of mine. Finally getting around to posting a few of the images.
Most of the photography I've done there has been casual iPhone 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.
First photographed with my iPhone 11 Pro, and then my iPhone 12 Pro Max (a few here also taken by my buddy with his iPhone XR). Most are straight-out-of-camera (SOOC) in jpeg format, with no off-board digital development. 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 did carry my larger Nikon Z7 system & lenses, but just a few times.
I may write a blog article soon about my experience shooting the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its new Raw Processing capabilities (and probably an article about the Z7 too - my favorite camera of all time so far).
