I regretted leaving the DSLR at home

I noticed the colour in the sky as soon as I walked out the door. I hesitated momentarily, making the quick decision to continue without my camera. I was running a bit late and didn’t want to get stuck behind the school bus. I regretted my decision.

I pulled into the parking area near the small boathouse. I shot this one on my iPhone 6 using vividHDR. The one below was shot using the native iPhone 6 camera app. I also did some minor editing in Adobe Lightroom Mobile.

I had stopped carrying my DSLR kit with me because, with winter, I expect the weather to be bad. I also know that I will be well on my way to work when the sun starts to rise. I know I will be driving home in the dark. I know that the area where I work, it is unsafe to walk around with an “expensive” camera.
