It’s In The Details

Warm Spring Detail

Near Vermillion Lakes #3 there are warm springs that feeds into the lake that keeps that water open nearly year round. I found one that started on the other side of the road. The algae was thriving in the warm water and the steam coming off of the surface in the cold weather, caused droplets of ice to form on the stems of the grasses above the water line. It has to be far enough above the warm water so the ice doesn’t melt, and higher, the mist doesn’t coagulate and form on the grass stems. It is an interesting process that would be easy to miss. This little puddle wasn’t very photogenic as a whole, but by moving in close and seeing the details, I was able to find an interesting image.

In the best light…
