If you see something in nature that you want to photograph, don’t wait, photograph it NOW.
You never know what’s going to happen in nature, and if you put off photographing something, it may be gone when you go back.
I’ve had several experiences of things being destroyed, including:
- Having a tree with an amazing trunk cut down. (See photo)
- My favorite Saguaro cactus being vandalized and having one of its arms cut into pieces.
- A great hiking trail with many beautiful vistas to photograph being destroyed by a forest fire.
- A hiking trail being rerouted away from Native American ruins, which can no longer be accessed.
These are just a few of the things I’ve experienced. Nature is ever changing, and not always in your favor, so don’t wait to take that great shot.
