It was one of those rare moments when I forgot about photography and was just contemplating the scene around me. It was so serene and at the same time so turbulent, but beautiful all together. It felt like it lasted forever. After a few minutes of nirvana, I came back to earth and realized that the perfect time to take a photo is almost up and I had to hurry with setting up my camera.

Over the years of doing photography, I've learned that taking even a perfect photo is easier than actually experiencing the moment. Nature is beautiful regardless of someone's camera or skills, it's rather the question of whether one sees it or not.
