    1. 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. πŸ™‚

      1. 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

  1. 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.

    1. 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,

      1. 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.
