During the previous year, a buddy of mine had the pleasure of providing me with a view into the breathtaking winter wildlife of North Dakota by sharing some of his daily photographs that he had taken while checking out oilfield sights. His demonstration, which took place amid the expanse of the oilfields, demonstrated that even in the most unanticipated locations, the wonders of nature can be captured with the touch of a smartphone. The reception that his photographs received was nothing short of astounding, and it sparked discussions about the availability of photography in this day and age of highly developed mobile technology.
