I supposed that is nearly every bloggers' lament. How many times do I have to think it before I put my camera bag in the car? The past two mornings have been visually stunning. We have had many cold nights and even frost, so the lakes and ponds have cooled down. Then, the weather turned amazingly warm and humid with rain and thunderstorms. Then, the last 2 mornings were clear skies with thick fog blanketing the woods and ponds. The morning light through the mist setting the autumn colors aglow has been absolutely amazing. Yet no memorable photos here! The best I did was a few terrible shots from my cell phone as I am driving down the highway on the way to work chiding myself.
This is why you should always have your camera with you!
