Would you rather be out with your camera in 100 degree heat or 10 degrees with snow?

Ten degrees any day! I have the clothing to handle ten and be comfortable, there is no comfortable for me in 100 degree heat.

I agree. Like I tell my wife - 'You can only get so naked'

I actually find the natural foliage in the summer to look very bland IMO, everything is green! Now in the winter here in the north east it's not much better with bare trees but those same trees look great in snow, again my opinion. The humidity here is just brutal, if I go out fir 30 min I need to shower.

Yup, but you're not going to git any nekid at 10 below. :) I'll take nekid. :)

I prefer cold. I hate Vegas summers. We were hitting 118 degrees a couple of days earlier. My 2 A/C units where running nonstop 24/7 for the last 2 weeks. I'm afraid of checking out my electricity bill

Are you sure about that? I'm a dude, a hairy one, and rather over weight...

Be VERY careful what you wish for in cases like this. I'll take cold and comfortable clothes.

Ah, but even a hairy overweight dude can appreciate the scenery. Daisy dukes, band-aid tops, butt floss bikinis, you're never going to see those at 10 below. :)

And that is kind of like saying you can 'enjoy the scenery' of a nice nature setting when it is next to an old coal power plant and toxic waste dump... Some things are kind of less appealing when places next to the wrong things.

Besides, some people don't need to see mostly naked people to be happy.

You are also forgetting how to treat hypothermia in very cold weather. Which skinny women are far more prone to than larger men.

But doesn't thermal distortion become much more pronounced when shooting these types of images in warm weather? Not only that, but colder air typically holds less moisture than warmer air. And colder air also typically holds less dust and other particulates than warmer air. Airborne water vapor and particulates generally deteriorate the resolution and the contrast in an image. The colder the better, I thought, for long-distance subjects. Or is this not so?

True, I was more worried about my comfort.

I'll take the cold. Anyday, all day.

But I live in Florida.... go figure. (I hate it here, btw)

I'll trade you. I'm in Chicago, and I hate it here, but like Florida.

Another Floridian here that prefers the heat.

I spent 19 days in NJ in February... cold - no thanks!

I used to do quite a bit of work outdoors all year long, but my primary job (6 yrs now) is an office job and I recently found out how acclimated I've become to being indoors. So I recently started getting outdoors again. Today I found myself walking between buildings at work and found it to be quite comfortable - 87* with 92% humidity :cool:

I live in Florida and I hate the heat. However, the summer skies in Florida are much more interesting than in winter. With the heat and humidity come thunderstorms that are often spectacular. You can get great sunsets and sunrises. The middle part of the day in which the light is very harsh is incredibly long and hot though. At the end of the day when the light is finally good, the bugs come out. I hate them too. :)

Give me a dry heat. It was only 118 at my Havasu house today. I don't do cold. It is just too much work. Plus it is less than an hour from either of my homes to elevation or the beach. Give me my flaps, shorts and t-shirt. People watching is just so much more fun in the heat. ;)

Cheers, Steve

If it's dry weather, I'll take either 100 or 10 F, but if it has to be in terms of the weather where I live, I'd rather have 10 F (or -10 C) than 40C, which is nigh unbearable even when you're not doing anything. Especially difficult to take pictures when your forehead is dripping sweat and you can't manage to look through the viewfinder!
