Fall color isn’t the only thing worth going out for this time of year. One of my favorites has always been and will continue to be steam. After a cold night with fresh frost along the banks of the Madison River, the steam that comes up from the sun heating up the water molecules can make some true magic happen. Not only does the sun provide this drama but it enhances it even further by adding light.
When it comes to working with steam be real careful with the front element because the sudden change of temperature on glass from hot to cold can cause damage. Also depending on how much steam you are working with you might want to carry a towel in your pocket to blot your gear dry. As for the photo itself it all comes down to the story you want to tell to show what you saw and felt that day.
