It was -8F with a 20mph breeze when I shot this one. The ice was so thick on my tripod from the mist that it looked like a crab boat on the Deadliest Catch. :D

Easy on the shadow/hightlights there, fella. And what's with the attachment link at the bottom of your post? Have you yet to learn how to properly post attachments? ;)

I use these from Cabela's - both the fingers and thumb open up quite easily, and are held back with little magnets sewn in. Also, in the back of the mitten part is a zippered pouch to put a hand warmer in (same kind Kevin was talking about). Had them for a couple years and they work great working the camera as well as keeping the hands nice and toasty warm.

I'm sorry Jim, I was reflecting on how much money I made from this photo. What did you type? ;)

-Yes, it's overly edited. That's what the client wanted. :)

Even on the coldest of days, we don't have these problems.

I was thinking the same thing. The few times I have photographed in extremely cold climate, I had a pair of miserably inflexible, but warm wool gloves, and when I needed to take the picture, I took them off real quick, then put them back on. I found myself using a tripod a lot more on those trips, I was able to actuate the remote shutter release button with the gloves on.

The truth : any glove that allows you to easily operate a camera will not be very warm.

I use a pair of Lowepro gloves that are pretty nice (but not super warm), and the North Face's ETIP series is very nice.

One solution is to wear some cheap magic gloves inside a pair of bulkier mits/gloves, and take the heavy stuff off when the train comes.
