The Portstewart Weather Bomb

June 30, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

One of the joys of modern technology these days is the mobile phone with a camera. They used to be called Camera Phones, but now they've gotten so clever with a multitude of functions, we call them Smartphones. Having a Smartphone has a couple of distinct advantages, one obviously is that you always have it with you, two they come with some pretty awesome cameras these days, and three you can edit that dull image with dramatic effect and then share it with the world.

As I did in the case of this image.

The image went viral around the world in 2014. Portstewart too the brunt of a weather bomb, which saw this little seaside town host budding and professional photographers alike. I used to work in the town, and such would be there before any news crews got wind of the awesome power that nature would unleash upon its defenses. In this scene which I captured on my iPhone you see that the children's play park completely submerged in water, as the sea made it's way over the defensive barriers.

As part of my blogging I'll be sharing more iPhone pictures I've taken out and about on my travels, some images will also have been captured using my GoPro which you can usually find underneath my DJI Phantom Quadcopter (or drone).
