There is nothing quite like being still, alone with your thoughts and the anticipation of what nature will bring you... will there be a brilliant sunset? Maybe a glowing moon... if there's no moon, that means a chance at amazing starlight images to take home in your camera like a little treasure chest filled with stunning colors and sparkling stars as a reward for your patience.
A good, small magnifer with light is not only good for map reading (if your GPS is on the fritz) but essential to have in your camera bag for seeing your settings in the dark. Have one on a long chain around your neck or attached to your bag or wrist.... whatever works best for you. This is invaluable for no longer having to dig for your reading glasses and a flashlight. Also, it saves you the stress of fumbling and dropping them in the dark.
Warm nights are on the way... get ready to watch the late sunsets and wait for the starry skies.
