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!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
