This was a humbling moment for me as a photographer.  I saw an older lady standing on the side of the road with her point and shoot camera aimed towards this scene, which was blocked by the trees from the angle I was approaching.  I'm ashamed to admit my first thought was not to worry about what she was taking a picture of, because she probably didn't know what made a good picture.  Fortunately, the little voice in my head told me to get over myself and I stopped to take a look and was reminded that it's not the camera that makes the photographer.
