I would not have believed there would be such a marked difference between my phone's camera and my Fuji . As I wrote that I realized how simple-minded it sounds. (I'm being kind to myself) I thought of my phone's camera as adequate. And it's certainly convenient as my phone is almost always within my reach.
With the time change, sunrise has to be the first thing after I get out of bed. The first photo was taken with my phone. A few minutes later I looked out of the window and yowsa! I grabbed my Fuji and headed outside.
