Winter landscape photography in January is limited for me despite numerous layers of clothing, I still have to take my gloves off to use the camera. Immediately, they begin to stiffen and in only seconds seem to numb. The math is this: 10 minutes to thaw out for five minutes of exposure. Some folks had been on the ice all afternoon after building fires. Fisherman dropped their lines through a hole they had axed in the ice and hunched over waiting for their line to tense.
God bless them. It was 5º and a northwest wind.
