Wonderful mountain shot, Bernard. I especially love the hint of even taller mountains in the clouds in the distance.
I'm very lucky in having a spouse who not only carries most of the camera gear (he insists, since he can hike farther than me) but who enjoys helping with the photography. He'll occasionally stop and say, "Don't you think that would be a good shot over that way?", and he's often right. While he's a generally hyperactive person who can't sit still, he is content to do so without complaining on the occasions I'm messing with lenses and tripods for awhile. On the other hand, I rarely stay in one place for more than five minutes too, so he doesn't often have to wait long. I think I'll keep him.
Maybe the people who have trouble mixing photography with family vacations should see if they can get their family interested in helping with the photography, even if it's just pointing out good things to photograph, but maybe even getting everyone an inexpensive camera so they can compare shots. It won't work for everyone, but it would for some...
