I was just on my back deck looking at the garden and thinking about how wonderful it looks now that the trees are full with leaves, and wanting to take a photograph of it.

I have never managed to take a picture at night with any success, and I don't believe any average photographer has either.

How hard can the technology be? The mechanics of the eye are fairly well understood, so what's the problem? Where are the cameras that can take pictures with results just like I see them?

What am I missing?
