Pocket cameras have inferior sensors, generally speaking, to the DSLRs we usually use. If you're wondering why your should-be-awesome money shots look lacklustre, especially when blown up, this is generally the reason.
You can make those deficits work for you, though; I enjoy the quality of flatness and tonal limitation little cameras tend to impose on scenes like this. They mimic what you see when intense sunlight is fucking with your depth perception etc.
Hills and the adjacent Pacific mean our spring clouds are particularly epic. Which is lucky because it had been raining solidly for a fucking week and I felt like mushrooms were growing in my sinus cavities.
