Well after the many weeks of warmish weather throughout January, we have finally gotten back to the cold temps. When I say cold, I mean down in the negatives, currently -15. It’s not so much the temp as the wind chill that gets you. In times like this it’s really important to think about what kind of gear you bring out into the field. Gloves, hats, and good boots are a must. In winter shooting it’s great to have multiple layers for all areas. For gloves it’s a combination of light weight Rossignol Cross Country ski gloves to arctic heavy weight REI gloves. Boots are LaCrosse Ice kings for those long standing periods. Flannel lined arctic pants, conveniently made to look like jeans and a heavy Nomar jacket. It’s the perfect combo for standing outside at the tripod working in the natural world.
