    Getting your tripod really wet??

    I have been thinking about using my tripod in some wet and snowy conditions. What do you think about putting your tripod legs right into a creek or snow? I wouldn't put the joints into the mud, but they would be in the water or snow. Can't wait to hear your thoughts. Cheers :D
