I went out late this night, in hopes of doing some light painting. I thought I would spin some lights and practice my orb skills, but that didn’t happen. As I was searching for an interesting place to light paint, I pulled into this park and noticed the lake was steaming. There was a street light illuminating the steam a little bit, which got me thinking. I drove my car down the boat ramp and parked close to the water. I turned on my high beams and lit up the lake and the steam coming off it. It looked awesome! I should have got a video to show you what it looked like in real time, but I was too excited at the time and didn’t think of it. I went straight for the timelapse. There were lots of little wisps of steam rising up (about one meter off the surface) and snaking back and forth as they traveled away from shore with the wind.
About 30 minutes into the timelapse I realized that my camera was taking photos faster than it should have been. I walked up to the camera and realized that it was on the wrong setting. I started up the timelapse again, this time with 25 second exposures. I got back in the car for warmth and waited until I had about 300 photos for a decent timelapse. It was after 4am when I finally packed up. I’ll have to check out the lake tonight and see if it’s steaming. Perhaps I can get a video to show you.
