We walked out to see the morning sun lighting up this large anvil shaped cloud in the sky, offshore in the Gulf. I took two photos, then just watched it for a bit. This scene lasted a few minutes, then the color faded and the shape began to dissipate.
I went back to carrying my Canon SLR with the 24mm to 70mm lens as my daily camera after experimenting with lighter weight options such as a point and click or phone. I think the photos I take with it have more depth, and my composition seems to come out just that much better. It is a lot more weight to carry all the time of course, maybe I can count it toward my daily exercise!
