Always bring your camera

This is the most important thing for an amateur photographer: Always bring your camera. (The proffesionel of course has at least two with him - he doesn't need to be told)

Which is why I left mine at home yesterday evening, when I went on a stroll around the lake with my big sister and her two kids, who are visiting at the moment. I left it at home because it was nearly dark, and cloudy and I knew there wouldn't be any photos worth shooting anyway.

Down at the lake, we saw the most disgustingly spectacular sunset I have ever seen in my life. Luckily for me, my sister is not half as much the fool as I (it doesn't seem to run in the family), so she had her Minolta Z2 with her. Without much further ado (click on the photos for bigger versions):

Too kitschy to be real. I suspect either terrorists, aliens, kindergarten-teachers or a combination thereof.
