BACKLIGHTED WATER VAPOUR

March 10, 2009:

There is not always fine weather outside for making pretty pictures. So I tried to take some photographs of backlighted hot water vapour. Surprisingly, some pretty irisation colours appeared, which kept constantly changing in the rising “fountains”. Even after a short time, as the water cools down, the colours become less intensive as they are when the water is very hot.
