There’s an old saying that goes “The best camera is the one you have with you”. Some of my best photos will live only in my memory forever because I didn’t have a camera handy.
Extending this thought, I say get the shot now, in the moment when you first see it. If you don’t, you may never get the chance again. The Sun won’t hit those clouds and bounce the light like that or have quite the same affect on those flowers ever again. I’ve had it happen more times than I can count.
That’s why when I opened the front door and saw this red dahlia, I stopped what I was doing and created this photo right then.
