A wicked line of thunderstorms moved through Connecticut this evening. I went out with my RAZR cellphone – but the pictures it takes aren’t all that great. Here’s what Gil Simmons saw, using the camera in his Treo 700W.

Higher resolution and better definition pay off when you’re shooting a rainbow – decidedly low contrast.

The thunderstorms never got down here, though parts of the state were pummeled.
