I *do* admire your dedication, GSpotter.

And you certainly have some fantastic shots to show for it.

I've never had blizzards to contend with, but when traveling I do stop the car and climb up or downhill to get a perfect shot of some lovely scene.

Sometimes the climbs are perilous, and they are always time-consuming; but I think it's well worth it when the perfect shot is at stake.
