Experiment Hello and welcome. It’s was a cold cold day in my part of NJ. The area was doing its best impression of the Arctic Tundra. In what could be considered stupidity I decided to do a little photowandering. Some we35 research to pass the time (I needed to get out the house).A quick walk in the forest with just a 35mm lens in a unknown environment was ideal.Well unknown in this type of weather. I usually walk the local trails in the spring & summer,never the winter.
InstrumentsSonyA7 35mm Fe 2.8 Nitz Strap & a extra battery
Location South Mountain a Reservation by the Old Short Hills Park Entrance
Observations It was smegging cold. The temp was 18f till the wind blew then it hit tundra territory. I expected to see a polar bear, form a friend ship with it, teach it photography, introduce the polar bear to cold brew coffee. Then I realized I could barely feel my nose. I had been out too long , the Sony with the 35 was a part of my arm. It was easy gear to work with in this weather.
Findings A small camera on a cold weather nature walk is convenient. It fits well with a heavy coat and gloves especially with a Nitz strap. The 35mm was a perfect field of view for this walk. The weight was barely noticeable and it made navigating through the slippery parts of the trail easy. I could not stay out too long because it was actually just too cold. Well for me.
