There is nothing worse than an awesome sunset about to happen and you have NO CAMERA

I hate daylight savings. I wish we stayed on summer time all the time, and I truly don’t understand why we bother in this day and age.

The main reason why I am so frustrated with daylight savings is it has moved the sunset forward an hour, so at this time of year its happening 5.30-6pm ish. Barely enough time to get home and grab camera let alone drive to a good spot, walk to where I need to be and setup.

I moved into a new building at work today, our whole team moved to be with the Sales team. And I happened to get a window seat that looks north and has a good view of the sky, and I could see the norwester clouds starting to stack up and get all chunky and defined, and be *perfect* for a sunset shot.

And. My. Camera. Is. In. The. Shop.

Being sensor cleaned. First one ever and Im a bit nervous, pick it up tomorrow.

But I was quietly wailing and gnashing my teeth at the lovely sunset I could see happening 2 hours beforehand, and I wasn’t able to shoot it. I guess that makes me an addict 🙂

Oh and did I mention that sunrises (never my fave time of day) are also an hour earlier?

I wonder if I can get onto the roof of our new building, its 10 floors…….?

    That’s why you need two cameras!

    After my first year of dSLR ownership I purchased a used Canon Rebel XTi (I think it’s called the 400D around the rest of the globe).

    I was very uncomfortable with the idea of leaving my expensive 40D and lenses in my car, but hated missing photographic opportunities that came along while I was out and about in my car.

    The used Rebel and a pair of lenses give me the chance to be ready at any time for a minimum investment.

      They had a 400D and lens for $595 which I seriously thought about for a bit 🙂

      Maybe next year.

    While another dSLR would be ideal, why not a small JPEG shooting point-n-shoot? Something must be better than nothing!

      Can I confess to being a bit of a camera snob now – ie if I want to get a particular quality of shot, I know that a P&S isnt going to cut it so I would rather miss out than take an average shot?

      I have my trusty S3IS but its not the same! Might be different if I had a better version of that, but thats money I could be spending on my ……precious …..
