From Hot to Fresh 

 For this week’s WP photo challenge, Jen’s prompts us to share a photo that expresses something fresh. “This topic is particularly wide open to interpretation; you might take a macro shot of blades of green grass peeking through melting snow, or the condensation on a glass filled with mojito, made with freshly-squeezed limes. Maybe the sweet face of a puppy, or a landscape at sunrise, the fresh start of a new day. “

My interpretation of Fresh is inspired by condensation of water molecules, moving between vapor to a liquid form, which I will present in 3 versions. Why that inspiration? Not because I’m a scientist, but simply because Spring has arrived with dramatic clouds and even lower temperatures.

Condensation is the process by which water vapor in the air is changed into liquid water. Condensation is crucial to the water cycle because it is responsible for the formation of clouds. Condensation is the opposite of evaporation.

Water molecules in the vapor form are arranged more randomly than in liquid water. As condensation occurs and liquid water forms from the vapor, the water molecules become organized in a less random structure, which is less random than in vapor, and heat is released into the atmosphere as a result.

  1. Great experiment, Lucile! I love the b/w filter, which really highlights the texture and depth of the water. Did you use any special lighting for this shot? This is a wonderful science “lesson!”–Patti


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
