This is an amazing photo of a process that few people have seen. Or inhaled.

How steam can stiffen clothes is a mystery to me.

Oh wow, I haven't seen this done in 20-30 years.

OMG, I can smell it! I Love it! Maple syrup is sooooooo expensive here! It is a luxury item.

Jacob said...

So esoteric, and your words are the words of mythical magic where even the air carries the breath of the flavor of maple.

Re your comment on Ocala DP - Methinks that's a raccoon's tail. Or maybe it's an old wives' tale?

That sweetened my instant oatmeal this morning!
Is your camera tasting real good now? You didn't get any sweet stickey maple fumes on your lens, did you? :)

Virginia said...

Where have I been??? Well I just took a little trip below and savored the photos I"ve missed. Today's photo blows me away. Fabulous. I can taste it.

I hope you are on the mend my friend.

Oh, but what does it do the hips??? Sharon Creech visited my blog and I saw you on her blog. I've read one of her books, "Walk Two Moons", and was tickled to have her commenting. Thanks for the connection.

Hmmm!a mist of maple..I'd like to get lost in there..!

Arija said...

Great shot. There is nothing like a sugary steam bath.

Giorgio said...

This is an amazing shot, with the steam framing the man looking at the light... it's very essential but yet it tells a whole story... perfect light and colors too... a 10/10 I'd say.

Fabulous image.

Tanya said...

I had no idea that's how it's done! Really neat photo!

Cezar and Léia said...

Fabulous, fabulous. I adore your photography. Sometimes I wish you would present them in a slightly larger format. Have you thought of it or not? Of course we can click on them to enlarge.
