I took a picture on my IPhone of my son while we were out hiking the other day. The photo was of my son and the beach in the background. When I checked the picture later I noticed a grey shadow behind him. What caused this to happen? I was thinking it had something to do with the light from the water or something like that.

    Also, were you using the basic camera app, or a different app? If different, which one? – scottbb Aug 16 at 21:59
