When the SLR is at home, the best camera is the one on your smartphone.  Took these while heading too and at an Oklahoma City Dodgers game.  Strong Thunderstorm rolled in right around the time the game was supposed to start and forced a nearly 2 hour rain delay.  Not my best photos but I thought I'd share them anyway.  Good use of my phones ultra-wide angle lens for some of these.

Yup, been guilty of leaving my camera gear at home when on a trip and amazed by the capability of my phone`s camera, and now with click on lenses available for phones, I do wonder where it will go from here given I have seen better images captured by phones than those I have managed to grab with my gear, but then I`m no photographer.   Guess your pics may fall into a category of record keeping.. which is what brought me into photography.

They're very good.

No.1 and 2 are great.  The sky and the rainbow look perfect.

No.3 looks like the most difficult to take, looking into the sun etc.
