That's me (or at least my feet) on the left with my Neos (waterproof, fold-up boots). They proved invaluable on my recent Provence workshop, where I was photographing running horses while standing in the water. Sure beats the alternative on the right :-)

These boots fold relatively flat and can fit in your backpack. I suggest that you keep 'em with you at all times, as you never know what you'll encounter when in the field.
