Well done – seen a couple of old Lawrence Welk and his bubble machine on the net that was something of trademark – think he would have been envious.

Thanks rezinate , I used the macro and 2 extension tubes , on tripod and rail in front of a summer kitchen window , Bubble have been all over the media as of late. Then I saw a fellow blogger TJ Fox post one. here. https://tjfox.net/2017/12/27/frozen-bubbles/
Awesome! looks sci-fi-ish. I love those leafy imprints? reflections? on them

Thanks. It was -30 Celsius the bubbles water content was freezing instantly, forming the leafy imprints. The other reflection is a Venetian blind in a window that I used to light the scene. 🙂

brrrr but awesome! love that the leafy is the crystalline structures. I don’t think I picked out the Venetian blind reflection although I could see it behind. I did see window reflections in the last one. If you pop one bubble, is it like shards like broken ice? or does it just disappear like when it’s not frozen? you may not be able to answer as I bet they’re all gone now, lol. I like how these pics are like science crossing photography
They are like shards.
Thank you . I saw your recent post this week , your pictures are fantastic.
Thank you too.
These are really cool. 😃
Very nice! You managed to really get the detail of the ice crystals. I love that. I haven’t had a chance to try these again, so I’m a little jealous. I was going to try a different set up, but it was just a tiny bit too windy. These are way too fun not to try at least a couple of times.
We tried outside and as you said way to windy. We put our solution on a back porch -30 C for a few minutes . Rebel Girl told me to use a straw and blow it onto a bowl with water . It gives only a half bubble . I got bored and just blew into the straw right in the solution . Within seconds it was 4 inches above the bowl. It froze instantly because of the temperature. I’m going to try again on the weekend it is going to be -30 C again,
I think the trick is going to be finding a place that still has good lighting, but is protected from even the smallest breeze. I’m not sure I have that, but I’m determined to try.
Maybe on the dash of your vehicle.
If left out for at least a couple of hours, that might work.
I read to put the soap solution in the freezer for a bit to give it a head start .
I had mine sitting in the snow while I was playing. seems the ones I did toward the end came out better than my first, so that is a huge possibility.
With the wind chill it is -40 C this morning I’m going to try again .
Those are so cool! How long did it take them to freeze?
Thanks. I put the solution on our porch. It was -30 C . Ten minutes later we were making bubbles that freeze instantly.
Wow, this is so fascinating. I just love details! Have a great new year!
Thank you same to you.
I just looooove these critters. I get a big smile each time I see them. 😊
Wow. If I didn’t know better I would have thought they were artisan paper weights.
They do look like them . But are as delicate as wet toilet paper .:)
Literally the coolest photos I’ve seen! 🙂 💜 Jackie@KWH
Thank you Jackie
They look so prettty
Now there’s some photo’s i’m never going to get a chance to take! 😉
Great Job RG! I really like the feathery crystals shot. 🙂
Winter can be fun . It is -40 C with the wind chill this morning. I think it is colder than mars
Fun??? 😉 Have you tried that throwing up boiling water from a cup and having it instantly freeze thing and photograph it?
No but We were talking about it last week. Today would be perfect for it.
Don’t forget to stand upwind of where you throw it! 😉 🙂
yes same rule as when peeing. 🙂 lol
Wow! Wonderful images. Very creative. Looks like lots of fun! ❤
It can be but you can’t stay out to long in this weather.
I know! It’s -37 degrees C here, with the wind chill. Predicting -43 Saturday. 😦
