During the winter Japanese macaques like to bathe in natural hotsprings that are a constant 42C. Because of the temperature difference between the water and the air, there can be a lot of steam. This usually makes focusing a problem, but I really like the low contrast, soft effect that it gives.
If you're interested in joining me on our next Japan trip and learn more about wildlife photography, please check out my website for more information and tour impression video clips:
Due to popular demand we have two tours to Japan next year, and both are filling fast.
Hope to see you there!
