The outdoor photographer's Murphy's Law

Murphy's law is an adage that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong".

The Outdoor Photographer's Murphy's Law, courtesy of Páramo, states the problem as follows:

"The most intense and exciting light is first thing in the morning and last thing at night .... leaving you to stumble about in the cold and dark.

The most dramatic skies always appear when the weather is doing its worst .... stormy, windy, blustery, wild.

The most exciting subjects always require you to stand or perch unmoving for long periods in the dampest, coldest places.

The most inspiring images are achieved by trekking across the roughest ground with your complete range of camera bodies, lenses, tripod, etc."
