Ha, so true!

I'm often out at low light taking landscape photos, and usually try and eat my main meal in the middle of the day to save the trauma of trying to find somewhere that sells anything edible later. I'm often in remote places in the northwest highlands in Scotland, and often bring my lightweight backpacking gas stove and some grub along.

In the summer, we have little sun here in the north (!) but do have long days - I was taking pictures at the weekend near Loch Torridon after 11pm in beautiful low light. Makes organising eating a bit easier at this time of year...
