Best spontaneous shot with your P&S?

I found my old 3.2 MP Minolta Dimage today and it got me thinking about what were the best photos you've taken with a point and shoot that you would otherwise have missed?

Here are two of my favourites.

1. A very strange sky in Granada, Spain It didn't last long and I only had time for a couple of shots before the light went (Canon G7)




2. These clouds have formed above a huge brush fire in the Sierra Nevada near Granada (Minolta Dimage Xt)

I've given up on P&S's with 'advanced' features for one that's small enough to carry all the time. It seems a fair trade off...

I wish I traveled in more interesting places daily. I've gotten in the habit of taking a camera with me to and from work but haven't found a compelling shot yet. Thats what I get for three mile walk in the suburbs I suppose.
