Numb digits

20th December 2010
I sparked up the RAV and slithered down to the river to take a few photos yesterday.

Boy, was it cold. I've a pair of proper photography gloves with cut aways for your thumbs and index fingers to enable you to twiddle things on the camera. Great idea but those two digits were eventually numb from cold. (When I say 'eventually' I mean that after about ten minutes the twiddling had to cease)

The light was about as good as it could be for snow scene shots: some sunshine but not so bright that you thought you were shooting directly into an arc welder.

Might chuck the little D4 and a titchy lens into my bag today as I'm going into town to round up the Christmas shopping.
