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 .
