    Lake Superior in boxers and trying to stand still enough to make a photo?? Ummmm ... no thanks! You're a nutcase . The closest I've been to that is smelt fishing with dip nets in a river at Wawa in late April/earlyMay in my jeans and rubber boots - when the water gets to your knees and you can feel your toes going numb and you still don't leave because the nets are so full that you can't lift them, you know you haven't had enough Red Cap Ale

    My personal worst .... a photo of our riverside place in Iroquois Falls on Dec 27'th a couple of years ago. I had snowshoed in a day earlier packing a trail so that I could drag in the 4x5 Calumet on a sleigh. I set up at 10:00am (tripod on the snowshoes 'cause the snow was too deep for the tripod) and by then it had warmed up to about -35'C and the shutter on the Schneider had loosened up enough so that I could get it to trip .... wasn't really sure what the speed was though .

    cheers

    I went on a hike with some buddies once up a side valley off the main Kitimat River valley where I live. Toward the head waters of this side valley, the only flat place left to walk was up the glacial fed creek itself and fighting through the insanely dense avalanche alder was way too much work. The water was mere minutes from the hanging glaciers at the end of the valley and was c-c-c-COLD!!

    Since it was raining, we would stop at each little rain fed waterfall and stand there for a while to warm up our feet.

    I'm soooo glad it wasn't deeper than mid thigh...

    It wasn't 4x5 days for me yet - years ago I was on the top of a small waterfall in the middle of winter with ice all over but yet water was still falling - I was shooting with a Nikon F3 & a 28 lens & had the camera mounted on a tripod & was holding the entire kit collapsed & hanging over the edge the get the shot.

    Long story short the shots were not what I had hoped for & I almost slipped & would have gone down about 50 feet to my ....

    After I got a grip on myself I decided i did not need anymore shots unless I had some rope (which I did not have)

    Hope your shots come out

    I went swimming in Lake Superior once in July. Luckily it was 90 some degrees outside, because the water had to be 45 degrees. I took a small point and shoot in with me just to prove that I was there. I probably swam for over a hour because of the heat. It took a week for me to find my balls again. Hope your shots turn out.

    James,

    On more than one occasion I've shed my shoes and rolled up my pants and set up my tripod in shin deep water to get a low angle lake-landscape. I felt something tickling my toes and looked down to see little Sunnies nibbling at them. If those things had teeth, they would be more viscious than Pyrannahs[sp].

    In the Summertime I actually pack a pair of those rubber soled aqua socks in my bag. They take up little space and give much better footing on slippery underwater rocks and a bit of protection from the broken beer bottles that some A$$holes like to leave behind in our parklands.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Best from the group. There is one more still drying that is similar, but the timing was pretty much at moment of impact, and he is completely obscured by the blast.

    That's got the Weegee look, but somehow I don't imagine him wading into the water in his trenchcoat.

    I wander around Washington DC at night with a 5x7. My wife thinks that is beyond hardcore.

    Depending on where you are, it may be much safer than wandering around with a 35mm. Lot to carry though, how do you do it?
