Indeed it was after the gates were installed.

The next twenty-one images were taken on an evening walk. The sun had fallen behind
the hills, so the light was low. As a result the shutter speed was slow resulting in blurred
images and in low light there is noise which further reduces sharpness. Nonetheless
the changing colors are clearly appreciated, so for now these images will stay. I'll
likely replace them with technically improved images. All twenty-one were taken with a
Droid X2 smartphone.

Also, for postage stamp sized and smaller sensors, like those in smartphones, one ought to remain
in adequate light to allow the lowest possible ISO use, usually 80. Low light requires higher ISO, like
the ISO 1600 used in these next images. This greatly reduces the image dynamic range thereby
overexposing the highlights and under exposing the shadows. This has the effect of blowing the
highlights and losing detail in the shadows. Recent dSLRs with their relatively large sensors are
capable of amazing dynamic range, unlike the tiny postage stamp sized sensors of smartphones.
