Why do we do this?

So, I open the DPReview home page to see what's going on and I see the home page below. I see the beautiful image and I say to myself, "yep, I also took that shot." Sure, my shot is different and not at good however what's the point? Why did I wake up in total darkness to setup with at least 50 other photographers and take this photo that has been taken millions of times. Are taking these photos, that basically take no skill, like collecting Beanie Babies?
