It's a truism for all photographers (and I know it's true for me) that you always get the best shots when you haven't got your camera with you!
I can't count the times I've said “look at that sunset / eagle / dolphin / market / (insert your own) – if only I had my camera”.
The other day I went for a walk and grabbed my camera at the last moment – after ten minutes a helicopter appeared in the base of the valley I was walking and started to inspect the electricity cables.
For once I actually got the shots that I would normally have taken in my head!
I'd have missed these completely …
Always take your camera!
