I brought my phone with me, of course, and sitting in the living room and looking out over the lake as a flotilla of Canada geese moved across the water in the early morning light, I realized that I had watched that sight thousands of times over the years.
I switched on my phone, went quietly out to the balcony, and took the photo.

It needs a splash from the large lake trout or largemouth bass that jumps in the morning, but it will do. The line of geese in the dawn, the reflection of the breaking clouds on the water... (The sun is rising beyond the right edge of the photo.)
I am going to do more of this, and take mental snapshots, as well.
