Photographer’s worst nightmare

Do you know what is photographer’s worst nightmare?

Well, not being able to take photographs of course. Today the weather was really bad and stormy when I went out to walk the dogs and I decided to leave my camera and even my phone at home.

Bad, bad decision. I regretted it all the time I was out.

I had the most amazing walk!! Yes, the weather was stormy and wet, I got showered twice and I dried out after that but it was absolutely amazing!! I walked on the High road,  just out of Oughterard. The name justifies the view that accompanied my walk till its end and back. You have no idea what Connemara had in store for me today, it was the most amazing of days!!

The dark clouds were flying so low over my head I felt as if I could touch them if I just stretch hard enough. Right above them, there were patches of brilliant blue sky smiling at me while I was getting showered right under. Because make no mistake, the wind was really strong and in a hurry, it really had some urgent business somewhere over the lake.

Still, the air was warm, crisp and shiny, the colours all around me vivid and bright – perfect conditions for nature photography, well, if we forget the constant drizzle flying in all directions at the same time…

I took a lot of photos this morning in my head, yes I can do that, I just wish I can show them to you now. I can see in photos and if I don’t have a camera at hand to do it in reality,  it can drive me crazy …

All I can do now is show you a picture of the dogs sleeping content next to the fireplace because they had a grand time and they were not bothered about photos, on the contrary probably they were happy I had no camera with me – they did not have to wait for me while I stop to take photos every few meters, I am sure it is such a drag for them…

        I was a Boy Scout and their motto was “be prepared”. You weren’t in the Boy Scouts but maybe a Girl Guide?

  2. Haha, be prepared is my usual moto too, but obviously not today. Recently my camera broke and I had to spend a while without one, so I am not taking any chances with the new one and my phone either. So I was ready for a full blown shower that didn’t really come ..

    When that happens to me I just tell myself that I am supposed to be fully present to absorb and enjoy the moment, which it sounds like you did!
