Film is Unlimited!
One aspect that has definitely been revolutionized in the age of the digital camera is the fact that you can virtually take as many photos as you like. Our house photographer has enough memory cards to take over 4000 photos a day!

If this appeals to you as well, whenever you go on a hike you should bring your camera along and really take the time to explore these details in nature. I take photos of anything and everything that catches my eye visually. Once you're back at home you can review the images (usually in the dozens or hundreds) and only save the best ones.
