I love landscape, just the views. I could walk 22 hours on a trail, every twist and corner, I'd enjoy it. I think that photography, at least for some (like me) isn't something to create joy but to take along. For example, during a trip, I can spend maybe 1 hour with photos, 8 hours with all other things (walking, observing, talking, eating something, maybe reading a bit, etc).

Fair enough and super agree.

The example I commented is similar in many ways.

The adventure, the feeling of doing something different, out of routine, sleeping in a hotel far from home, being there waiting for the sunrise in a cold morning but loving it.

That example is less about a good shot (which is not), and more about the effort, the experience and adventure.

When you say you walk 22h on a trail, that's what I mean. The effort and adventure happened.

It may have happened for a bunch of reasons besides photography, but photography was there, being part of that bigger effort anyway.

That whole story I told about chasing dreams in photography, is not all about the images at the end of the day.

Is about wanting to live the adventure again.

So I completely understand your example.
