A genre in itself, street and journalistic photography embrace many disciplines.
- Candid shots, street portraits, newsworthy editorials or just the raw nature of the human experience.

I know some Jeep club members that would look at that as a challenge (and probably make it.)
The most I've ever tried was about two feet and it scared the dickens out of me. :o

Over here Land Rover owners are much the same, many have snorkel equipped vehicles.

Land Rovers are quite capable vehicles. My Uncle had one and that thing could go just about anywhere.

If I had the expendable cash for one I'd get a snorkel for my rig.

We have roads in the delta that I've driven in to and faced similar, but your sign is better!

Thanks for a smile.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

snorkeling is not for YOU

Four feet of water would take out most vehicles. Wow that's amazing! S-
