[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening. As the exposed surface cools by radiating its heat to the sky, atmospheric moisture condenses at a rate greater than that of which it can evaporate, resulting in the formation of water droplets.

When temperatures are low enough dew takes the form of ice; this form is called frost.

As dew is related to the temperature of surface, in late summer it is formed most easily on surfaces which are not warmed by conducted heat from deep ground, such as (grass) leaves, railings, car roofs and bridges.

Culturally dew is often associated with purity and freshness. This is evidenced by the names of certain popular beverages such as Mountain Dew and Sierra Mist.( in wikipedia)
