The trouble with finding that the sunset is going to be especially nice is that you are there with your camera, so you keep clicking away. Look away for a second and when you look again you would swear that the colors are up a notch and it’s even more beautiful than you thought.

Our fearless camera club leader says that if you really want to know how to choose between essentially equal photos then look at the metadata and choose the biggest file. Bigger file means more detail. Did I do that? Of course not.

And just when you’ve already taken a million pictures and you think you’ll be heading home soon this happens.
