    Or ... a better camera and photographers who don't understand light.

    ETA: Oh and a suitably effective lens hood (something I routinely leave mounted on my slr lenses) would add an unacceptable amount to the thickness.

    Taken this morning, pointed towards and just below the rising sun - iPhone 5 camera cannot be too bad!




    Towards the foreground, where the lake changes depth markedly, there is a purple tinge but not overwhelming. (A tourist in this image was using an iPad to take similar panoramas.)
