Steam Devils on Lake Ontario

Toronto - Jan. 3, 2008

The cold air temperatures with relatively warm lake water and a slight breeze combined to create a variety of steam devils. These atmospheric conditions can create a vortex of swirling steam that rises into the frigid air. This morning there were a large variety of steam devils but they were far from shore. Had the temperature been a few degrees colder, they would've been closer to the shoreline.

The changing light conditions of the sunrise made for a wide pallet of colours as well.
