Why You Should Always Carry Your Camera

Why should you always carry your camera? Take a look at the image above….. End of lesson!

I was greeted with this sunrise on my way home from work yesterday morning. As I was heading up into the mountains where I live, I could see it was going to be a great sunrise. Not having a vantage point to shoot from, I decided to just enjoy the show on the road. As I crested the pass and headed down toward the valley where I live, this scene unfolded in front of me. I immediately locked up the brakes and came to a screeching halt on the side of the road. Everything inside my truck that wasn’t tied down found it’s own unique place in a pile on the floorboard. This included my camera. After digging my camera out of the aforementioned pile, I rapidly changed lenses, set up my tripod, composed and took the shot. Immediately after, the sun cleared the top of the clouds, and the scene was gone. All of this took place in less than two minutes. Years of experience, and plain old dumb luck both played a huge role in getting this shot. I guess the photography gods were with me yesterday.

Enjoy!
