Fort Point Surf

Can you tell the water is cold?

They all wear booties and gloves. Some wear hoodies as well.

It can get as low as 8 °C (46 °F). Not sure how cold it was but I was sitting on the rocks above from 1:30 in the afternoon to 4:00 and by the time i left my fingers were so cold that I could no longer press the shutter button.

Note to self - get gloves! with removable finger tips if possible.

Do you think they wear willie warmers as well? Otherwise you can be incapacitated for the next 24 hrs, or need a magnifier and tweezer ...
John Eagle: Yeah, I wonder. Next time I am out there I will ask - "Hey do you wear willie warmers?" Wonder how that will go over? ;P

LOL at Louis. I bought a cheap pair of cloth garden gloves for inside the house, John, when my fingers are too cold...and just cut off the finger tips. That works great inside. My gloves for outside are very form-fitting and I can actually shoot pictures with them on. At least you had time to get some excellent shots, like this one!
John Eagle: Ginnie, Thanks, I got a few good shots. I'll check out the garden gloves.
