Sunset on the summit of Mauna Kea, by Tocha

As promised, these are Tocha's beautiful, medium format film photos of the most breathtaking sunset we've witnessed.  You can see me in the last shot, without camera (I'd run out of film-doh!), which allowed me to watch the sunset fully present.  I'll admit that sometimes I don't feel like I'm truly present when I'm photographing something because I'm so focused on making good images.  Any other photographers out there feel conflicted about this?  Maybe one day I'll get good enough that it will be like a zen experience all the time when I'm shooting.
