Best viewed LARGE (the small magnifying glass above this image). Thanks!

*Frozen soap bubble on a bed of moss, capturing the morning sun. At these temperatures (7 degrees at the moment), the bubble froze within seconds :)

Wow!! Stunning photo!
January 6th, 2014  
amazing!
January 6th, 2014  
By tomorrow night, the local temps will be -11F, so my kids and I will attempt to freeze soap bubbles after I get home from work. :-) Terrific pic!
January 6th, 2014  
@bernicrumb Wow, -11! That should do it! Bundle up! :)
January 6th, 2014  
This idea came to my attention a few weeks ago and am totally jealous that in Australia it is unlikely I will get to try it!! Awesome pic btw!
January 6th, 2014  
Breath taking!!
January 6th, 2014  
We are expecting single digits Tuesday planning on seeing what happens when I try this
January 6th, 2014  
Awesome~ I want to try this, was it difficult?
January 6th, 2014  
@sassyinma Thanks Sandi! It's just really finicky; the bubbles are very delicate, and when you do finally get one to stay without popping, the slightest wind will tear it up. Patience will be your best friend for this one! :)
January 6th, 2014  
Thanks!
January 6th, 2014  
This is wonderful. Makes me wish for colder weather so I can try it!
January 6th, 2014  
Totally awesome. Fav
January 6th, 2014  
Nia
You did it! Fav. I wonder if you add some glycerin to the soap mixture if it will help with the fragility? It helps when making bubble mixture.
January 6th, 2014  
@sianipops Hmm, I have no idea; I just took it straight from the bottle! Thanks!
January 6th, 2014  
Oh WOW!!! Fav

Great shot! I tried it a few days ago, but I couldnt get one bubble that would freeze before it popped.
January 11th, 2014  
Aaron, this is truly beautiful, I just love your work, and am asking (if I may be so bold) if you would follow me and give me some constructive advice. I am using a bridging camera and still on Auto. I would be so appreciative of any help.
January 12th, 2014  
Yep, "gobsmacked" pretty much says it all!
January 13th, 2014
