30 Fantastic Photos Taken With The iPhone 6

People are taking more photographs than ever before, most of which are captured with smartphones! One of the most famous smartphones on the market right now is Apple’s iPhone 6, which features the iSight camera. The photographs these cameras are able to take are incredible, so we thought we’d share 30 of the best shots taken on the iPhone 6.

              This elephant was captured in the middle of his journey, and this photograph makes you wonder where this elephant is now.

                Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.26.42.png

                  This majestic mountain is surrounded with luxurious pastel colours, which are a stark contrast to the dark hills at the front of the photograph.

                  9. Sarah P. in White Sands, New Mexico, USA

                  Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.26.21.png

                    This photograph truly captures the immensity of the desert and sky, as well as a possible story developing between the two people.

                    10. Austin M. in Steamboat Springs, CO, USA

                    Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.26.17.png

                      Here, the snow is captured in exquisite detail. You can almost feel the chill.

                      11. Kim G. in El Calafate, Argentina

                      Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.26.14.png

                        The depth and difference in this photograph cannot be challenged, but it is still beautifully balanced.

                        12. Silke W. in Bali, Indonesia

                          This spontaneous portrait is extraordinary. The smile is so genuine it would be difficult to take another like it.

                          13. Alastair B. in The Cairngorms, Scotland

                          Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.25.56.png

                            Although the reindeer fills the photograph as the subject, you can also traverse the mountains in the background.

                            14. Ahmed A. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

                            Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.25.44.png

                              Although the ground is inexplicably flat, Ahmed has managed to add layers to the landscape using the colourful hot air balloons.

                              15. John L. in British Columbia, Canada

                              Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.25.41.png

                                Chances are, this was a photograph taken by chance rather than thoroughly prepared, but it still holds it’s own.

                                16. Shan L. in San Francisco, California, USA

                                Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.25.38.png

                                  Capturing a seagull taking off can take hours, but Shan has managed to get this particular guy as well as a wonderful view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

                                  17. Noah W. in Marina Del Rey, California, USA

                                  Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.25.25.png

                                    Here, the shadow of the dog interrupts the solid stripes of the gate shadows.

                                    18. Hyeong Jun K. in Seoul, South Korea

                                      Although this photograph may seem empty, the tree is more than enough to fulfill the frame.

                                      19. Andrew T. in White Sands National Monument, New Mexico, USA

                                      Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.53.png

                                        This terminator line featured on this dune’s crest is glorious, drawing the eye upwards and implying an uphill climb.

                                        20. Cole R. in Star Valley Ranch, Wyoming, USA

                                        Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.40.png

                                          Even the clouds appear to be pulling your eyes towards the tiny house in this photograph.

                                          21. Sawyer K. in Oak Glen, California, USA

                                          Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.36.png

                                            A spin on the usual landscape and leaves photograph, this shot combines the beauty, surprise and humour of a single second.

                                            22. Chris C. in Santa Monica, California, USA

                                            Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.27.png

                                              In Chris’s photograph, the sky is in complete opposition to the town below, yet together they create a great shot.

                                              23. Paul O. in Naugatuck, Connecticut, USA

                                              Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.22.png

                                                Simple yet intriguing, these water droplets captured on a car hood create a unique and textured shot.

                                                24. Paul O. in Chicago, Illinois, USA

                                                Advertising

                                                Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.24.12.png

                                                  Photographing this shock of a rainbow against a monochrome background is a work of genius from Paul.

                                                  25. Renee M. in Union City, USA

                                                  Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.53.png

                                                    Light and shadow stroll together, much like the two characters pictured in this photograph.

                                                    26. Cielo D. in Alameda, California, USA

                                                    Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.49.png

                                                      This almost looks surreal, like something you’d find on an album or movie cover, yet it is simply Cielo’s reflection on a wet street.

                                                      27. Brendan Ó. in Copenhagen, Denmark

                                                      Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.39.png

                                                        The contours on this street are captured perfectly in this shot, made better because the people happen to be standing or cycling between them.

                                                        28. Andrew P. in Phoenix, Arizona, USA

                                                        Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.26.png

                                                          These warm colours capture the heat of the sunset, while also softening the spiky cacti.

                                                          29. Dan C. in British Columbia, Canada

                                                          Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.22.png

                                                            Like many great photographs, this abstract shot is difficult to interpret, but the bubbles and water are breathtaking.

                                                            30. Gabby K. in Snoqualmie Pass, Washington, USA

                                                            Screen Shot 2015-03-12 at 17.23.15.png

                                                              Dreamy, mystical and ethereal, this photograph looks like the beginning of a fairy tale.

                                                              12 Best Foods That Improve Memory and Brain Health

                                                              12 Best Foods That Improve Memory and Brain Health

                                                              Nutrition plays a vital role in brain function and staying sharp into the golden years. Personally, my husband is going through medical school, which is like a daily mental marathon. Like any good wife, I am always looking for things that will boost his memory fortitude so he does his best in school.

                                                              But you don’t have to be a med student to appreciate better brainiac brilliance. If you combine certain foods with good hydration, proper sleep and exercise, you may just rival Einstein and have a great memory in no time.

                                                              I’m going to reveal the list of foods coming out of the kitchen that can improve your memory and make you smarter.

                                                              Here are 12 best brain foods that improve memory and brain power:

                                                              1. Nuts

                                                              The American Journal of Epidemiology published a study linking higher intakes of vitamin E with the prevention on cognitive decline.[1]

                                                              Nuts like walnuts and almonds (along with other great foods like avocados) are a great source of vitamin E.

                                                              Cashews and sunflower seeds also contain an amino acid that reduces stress by boosting serotonin levels.

                                                              Walnuts even resemble the brain, just in case you forget the correlation, and are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, which also improve your mental magnitude.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              2. Blueberries

                                                              Shown in studies at Tuffs University to benefit both short-term memory and coordination, blueberries pack quite a punch in a tiny blue package.[2]

                                                              When compared to other fruits and veggies, blueberries were found to have the highest amount of antioxidants (especially flavonoids), but strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are also full of brain benefits.

                                                              3. Tomatoes

                                                              Tomatoes are packed full of the antioxidant lycopene, which has shown to help protect against free-radical damage most notably seen in dementia patients.

                                                              4. Broccoli

                                                              While all green veggies are important and rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, broccoli is a superfood even among these healthy choices.

                                                              Since your brain uses so much fuel (it’s only 3% of your body weight but uses up to 17% of your energy), it is more vulnerable to free-radical damage and antioxidants help eliminate this threat.

                                                              Broccoli is packed full of antioxidants, is well-known as a powerful cancer fighter and is also full of vitamin K, which is known to enhance cognitive function.

                                                              5. Foods Rich in Essential Fatty Acids

                                                              Your brain is the fattest organ (not counting the skin) in the human body, and is composed of 60% fat. That means that your brain needs essential fatty acids like DHA and EPA to repair and build up synapses associated with memory.

                                                              The body does not naturally produce essential fatty acids so we must get them in our diet.

                                                              Eggs, flax, and oily fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel and herring are great natural sources of these powerful fatty acids. Eggs also contain choline, which is a necessary building block for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, to help you recall information and concentrate.

                                                              6. Soy

                                                              Soy, along with many other whole foods mentioned here, are full of proteins that trigger neurotransmitters associated with memory.

                                                              Soy protein isolate is a concentrated form of the protein that can be found in powder, liquid, or supplement form.

                                                              Soy is valuable for improving memory and mental flexibility, so pour soy milk over your cereal and enjoy the benefits.

                                                              7. Dark Chocolate

                                                              When it comes to chocolate, the darker the better. Try to aim for at least 70% cocoa. This yummy desert is rich in flavanol antioxidants which increase blood flow to the brain and shield brain cells from aging.

                                                              8. Foods Rich in Vitamins: B vitamins, Folic Acid, Iron

                                                              Some great foods to obtain brain-boosting B vitamins, folic acid and iron are kale, chard, spinach and other dark leafy greens.

                                                              B6, B12 and folic acid can reduce levels of homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine increases are found in patients with cognitive impairment like Alzheimer’s, and high risk of stroke.

                                                              Studies showed when a group of elderly patients with mild cognitive impairment were given high doses of B6, B12, and folic acid, there was significant reduction in brain shrinkage compared to a similar placebo group.[3]

                                                              Other sources of B vitamins are liver, eggs, soybeans, lentils and green beans. Iron also helps accelerate brain function by carrying oxygen. If your brain doesn’t get enough oxygen, it can slow down and people can experience difficulty concentrating, diminished intellect, and a shorter attention span.

                                                              To get more iron in your diet, eat lean meats, beans, and iron-fortified cereals. Vitamin C helps in iron absorption, so don’t forget the fruits!

                                                              Zinc has constantly demonstrated its importance as a powerful nutrient in memory building and thinking. This mineral regulates communications between neurons and the hippocampus.

                                                              Zinc is deposited within nerve cells, with the highest concentrations found in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for higher learning function and memory.

                                                              Some great sources of zinc are pumpkin seeds, liver, nuts, and peas.

                                                              This herb has been utilized for centuries in eastern culture and is best known for its memory boosting brawn.

                                                              It can increase blood flow in the brain by dilating vessels, increasing oxygen supply and removing free radicals.

                                                              Studies have shown that both green and black tea prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine—a key chemical involved in memory and lacking in Alzheimer’s patients.

                                                              Both teas appear to have the same affect on Alzheimer’s disease as many drugs utilized to combat the illness, but green tea wins out as its affects last a full week versus black tea which only lasts the day.
