328/365 A steamy mug of tea

This is a photo I'm going to have to try again.

For my Long Exposure theme week, I wanted to try to capture steam coming off a cup of tea. The challenge is that steam is rather transparent, even when lit directly.

If your monitor is good, you should be able to see a little cloud of steam hovering above this mug. If not, it's just a photo of a side-lit mug in a dark room on a dark table.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. I was just hoping for a little more excitement.

Camera: Canon 40D, 5s, f/3.5 at ISO 100
