I go no matter what the weather with my hardy Wista 4x5. It can rain/drizzle where I live for weeks at a time so waiting for good weather isn't an option, besides, shouldn't a rain forest be photographed in the rain? When it gets really gnarly in the winter at -20c with 70 km/hr northerly outflow winds, you can always find a quiet spot out of the wind in the forest or the lee corner of a pocket beach. I love wild weather!
Noiw that it is winter here in Wisconsin I have been enjoing one of my favorite photo accessories, Kahtoola Micro Spikes which Murray turned the APUG community onto last year. You can go anywhere any time uinder any conditions wearing these on your feet. Thanks, Murray!!..Evan Clarke
