Being in the right place at the right time

A while back on the way to a shoot, I noticed the sun coming up and I also noticed that about every 20 seconds I was passing (and missing) one epic scene after another. When I saw this scene, I had to pull over, back up 500 feet, get out of the car, put on a jacket, rearrange several camera cases in the trunk, build a camera and then finally shoot. I figure if I’m lucky enough to stumble across a great scene like this, I might as well take the three minutes to shoot it. So many times I’ve just blown it off and then later regretted it.
