    I have always loved to take photos during winter storms, rain storms and other wild weather. I know if its windy I don't expect it to work in those conditions but does anyone know of a portable shelter system just big and light enough to keep the rain and or snow off me and the camera, sort of like a light weight Gazebo that is portable? It may not exist but just thought I would ask.

    If your not moving often, would a hunting blind work?

    As for the camera, try using a shower cap to keep elements from getting on to it.

    the car is my favorite shelter !

    you can have the heater on, and be listening to the news at the same time. Also you have use of anything you can plug into your car charger.

    Yeah, I am thinking about getting a topper on my truck just so I can sit in the back and shoot.

    I agree with you though, at some point I just want to get out in the elements and shoot!

    I reckon something like the kata is the way to go, with some decent wet weather clothing. Keeps the camera and you dry, and very mobile.

    Hope I can see either or both of these at the Camera shops I go to, look like great ideas and would be perfect.
