Taking the moment to shoot the nearby hills off a porch while finding some time to relax. Sometimes the urge to just enjoy the moment and not take out the camera is overridden by a photographer’s need to capture that moment for posterity.
Two minutes to get the camera gear out of the car, another minute for setup, then one more minute for composition, one shutter snap and it was back to sitting on the porch with a beer.
The challenge is not always about finding the shot. The challenge is to know when there is a shot and taking your best attempt at capturing it quickly.
