What gets you out with your camera?

Having just read a thread from one of our members about losing motivation to get out with his camera I thought we should try and discover what motivates us to keep those apertures open!!

Me and hubby have a very nice caravan which gets us to some great places not too far away, even if it is only for the weekend. I work ridiculously long hours, one day off a fortnight and have to make the most of weekends off. To escape for a couple of days is bliss and our weekends are always based on good photographic opportunities for me, mountain biking for hubby. Without our caravan I probably wouldn't use my camera half as much. Even if the weather is a bit rubbish I take all my books and mags so I can at least read about photograhy!
Look forward to the day I can get a laptop then I will be able to work on my images at the end of the day without having to wait 'til we get home Wink

What gets you out and about and inspired?

Great big billowing clouds!
Any weather as long as there is a great big mountain to climb.

Light, light, light and more light.

I'm lucky enough to live in a fabulous place so when the light turns up I just have to get out into it with the camera.

Is size important?

Given work and childcare, it is very very rare that I get the opportunity to go out specifically with the intention of doing photography alone (1 day so far in last year), so I tend to take my camera everywhere and just photograph things that strike me in the day - if anything does. Hence photos of office, train station, university buildings, family outings, view on walk from picking kids up from school and nursery. Nowadays its just a part of life- which since I returned to photography after long break in order to stop smoking is probably good.

Bugs, wildebeest herds, huge ones, in my back yard; gohers(ground squirrels really); looking forward to the return of the dragonflies and damsels. Last week it was -21C here with a -35 windchill, today it is +15C, and I'll be soaking up some vitamin D with a good book.
