Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

A cold weather experiment

Here's something you can try when the temperature in your neck of the woods dips below zero. The colder, the better, actually, for this experiment to work. The other night it was -3 F (-19 Celsius) outside, so we decided to try it: toss boiling water into the air, and it will completely vaporize before it hits the ground. And I'll be darned, it worked! The important thing to remember is that the water must be boiling (or at least steaming hot). The greater the discrepancy between the temperature of the water and the temperature of the outside air, the better it will work.  Of course, the other thing to remember is to please be safe and toss the water away from yourself and anything/anyone else that is important to you! If you're curious to know more about this phenomenon, click HERE to read about it.

Ha, Never tried that. But I will try, although not now as it's 7C and it's the calm before the storm Svea.

You'll have to let me know how it goes, Stefan!

I've seen that done here with temperatures even lower. It's quite something!
