[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a new year morning nature walk the creek was steaming (air temp was -15 celsius). This created the hoar frost on the stream side bushes and the ducks appeared to be taking time in the hot springs even though there were no hot springs. The effect was just the slightly warmer water temperature than the air temperature. I did not edit this except to crop and resize for posting.

Hello Jim,
The big difference in temperature between land and air has created quite a beautiful scene for your morning walk. Very soft lighting in conjunction with the faint fog gives a mystical touch to the image. Nicely focused. TFS.
