I understand exactly what you mean, dear Marc! You can't imagine how frustrated I was when one evening last winter I was up on a viewpoint just above Salzburg and saw the most incredible and dramatic sunset over the Tennengebirge and Berchtesgaden Alps you can imagine, with the clouds set on fire in all kinds of colors - and I didn't have my Canon PowerShot with me!! I tried capturing it with the iPhone, but that just didn't make it!
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
