A little while back, on December 8th, I missed a photo opportunity possibly of a lifetime. An amazing weather phenomena appeared over Stockholm, Sweden. Some call it a weather sun, but most of you probably know it as a Halo.
I’ve been telling myself for years now that I should always carry a camera when I’m out. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve “seen” great pictures, without having a camera anywhere near. Well, what about your mobile phone? Surely there’s a camera in that? Yes, but it’s only a VGA camera, and it’s good for nothing!
To constantly carry my DSLR around is obviously not an option, but you’d think it would be an easy thing to keep my compact in my pocket. I should have learned my lesson by now!
Anyway, back to the missed opportunity, the Halo. The fact is that I never even saw it, so even if I have had a camera with me I still wouldn’t have gotten the picture.
I’m sure I’m not the only one this happens to. What’s your best missed photo opportunity?
