I forced myself to get out from my warm bed and try to get some early morning sunrise pictures. Well I discovered I was out there way too early. Although the sun was to break clear of the horizon at a certain time, it would be nearly an hour later before sunlight peaked over the mountains to the east. All the while I sat there in the car, cold, starting to get hungry and thinking about how I could have stayed in bed an hour longer. I'll try again only better prepared next time.
Oh, and then there is when you go to take your first picture and see there is no card in the camera.
You left it stuck in the computer back at home.
