In my searching through my archives for snow photographs I came across several I’d made last summer of dew. Dew forms as surfaces radiate and cool to a temperature—the dew point—where water vapor turns to small droplets of liquid water. This is a simplistic explanation of what is a remarkably complex process the occurs so often in so many places.
Dew on spider webs is a favorite of many photographers. Dew on grass or weeds is even more interesting to me because of the wider possible variety of compositions and lighting. When the sun is refracted through the dew drops, the light changes from a single source to literally thousands of sources with fascinating results. Belly-down in the grass of course!
This time of year colder conditions result in hoar frost! Perhaps tomorrow morning I’ll get out early and see what I can find near a low seep in the pasture at Morse Farm. It is often a spot where winter’s version of dew grows on a cold, clear morning.
