I’ve said it previously … and I’ll say it again: I love using my iPhone for photography! It’s not just having a conveniently-sized digital camera in your pocket, but it’s the apps to edit the photos, and the wifi & 4G internet connection to upload shots and share them with the world wherever you are … even with frozen fingers atop some of the highest mountains in Oz.
I’ve wondered for a while why the pocket digicam makers haven’t incorporated Android (or Apple) operating systems and touch screens with their wifi? Then you could carry a better camera around to snap photos on the fly, edit in Photoshop Express or VSCO directly on the camera, then upload to Instagram when you get to a wifi hotspot. I wonder if the Canons, Nikons and Sonys would have kept selling lots of point-and-shoot digital cameras, rather than lose ground to iPhones, Samsungs and iPod Touches, if they had features like that?
While you’re pondering these things, take a look at some photos that I’ve shot, edited and now posted on WordPress all via my iPhone. Technology is marvelous.

What a view from the top of Mt Perisher.
Winter hit the high country, with snow covering much of the land around The Alpine Way.
When you don’t have chains, catching the Skitube to Perisher makes life much easier.
Catching a train up to the snow reminds me of my time at the Garmisch glacier GAP Camp.
Zee train, zee train!
About to enter the earth…
So frozen and windblown up top, I thought I was on Planet Hoth.
The Mile High 2015 riders meeting in the fog.
15 year-old Josh Vagne already has Blue Steel (TM) on lock.
Staying at The Station for the duration of The Mile High is a little bit like school camp. Pod land.
About to drive into a super-intense microcell storm on the Monaro Hwy.
Committed to all things rad ... man! Snowboarding, surfing, photography, journalism, travel, fashion, art and anything else that pops into my mind is what you might find here.
And the Radman nickname? It was coined by a couple of snowboarders back in 2006 and has well and truly stuck!
