Taken on top of Mount Wellington, Hobart, Tasmania.
100kph wind at close to zero degrees celsius was making it for the right place to be.

You have to ways to handle (expensive) camera: you can keep it locked in a tight secured strongbox, fearing that you would damage it with any tiny bit of dust flying in the area. Or you can just carry it everywhere and use it as you go. I admit, this camera has travelled over 40 000km and is totally messed up on many levels: bent lens ring, contaminated glasses, deficient weather sealing... But I couldn't have taken this shot if I had kept it secure in it jewellery case.

I really thought I'd loose a finger or two that day. Tassie is a crazy place with its weather

Wonderful scene, I actually felt a chill looking at the two sitting together in the cold. With your depth of field and focus you nicely keep the eye on the subject.
