Moonlight Serenade

It's been a while (years) since I shot frozen bubbles, and today was a reminder why. It has to be very cold, and I'd rather be inside where it's warm :) It was 4 degrees Fahrenheit when I shot this.

@kali66 @catwhiskers Thanks guys! I was out for a while before I got one to stick without popping on the ice crystals. Also, many just wanted to float away and it was fascinating watching them burst into shreds of frozen confetti as they surrendered themselves to the inevitable. I considered trying to capture that on film, but opted instead to simply watch and enjoy :)

Very cool. Ha ha, I tried this the other day too. I had no luck as it was a bit too breezy and they kept disappearing or just popping. Today was -18C here, about 0F I believe. Too cold to ski, that's for sure.

Well done...nice focus

Dreamy and beautiful!

Its got the faintest design on it - should be a very special marble or decoration!

Came out great. Love the tritone background.

Impressive, well done!

Outstanding shot
January 5th, 2017  
Amazing! Fav

This is something that still evades me as we just don't get it cold enough here :( Lovely shot Aaron
January 5th, 2017  
How lovely! Never tried this as it doesn't get cold enough here.
January 5th, 2017  
wow. thats pretty amazing. What was it resting on? And did you literally blow a bubble and it froze? ... probably a very stupid question but Ive never seen this done before :)
January 5th, 2017  
Wow! I love the layered background too!
January 5th, 2017  
Very nice indeed.
January 5th, 2017  
Very nice. I tried this once without success, after seeing your's I want to give it another go
January 5th, 2017  
@colorfade Thanks Andrea! The bubble is resting on snow, and yes, when you blow bubbles in freezing temperatures, they freeze almost immediately. You can watch the frost cover the bubble in a feather pattern, only takes a couple of seconds. The trick is to keep it from popping :)

fav - this is brilliant
January 5th, 2017  
Beautiful - we're cold and it's 4C!
January 5th, 2017  
Great job! It's stunning. Did you blow the bubbles into the snow?
January 5th, 2017  
I hope it's never cold enough here for me to try this.
Beautiful.

@bristolrose Thanks! Yes, I blew the bubbles, but most of them either floated away or popped right away (the ice crystals were sharp)! It usually takes me a while to get one to stick :)

Brrrrr.. also very beautiful, magical.

@grizzlysghost that's interesting to know...we are supposed to be getting as low as 3f this weekend..colder than I have ever known..but maybe a good photo op! 😄
January 5th, 2017  
@bristolrose There's always a silver lining :)
January 5th, 2017  
Incredible shot. I've never seen a frozen bubble. Can't imagine. Course, we've never had 4 deg. F. here either. In sunny southern CA.?? Never!
January 6th, 2017  
Magic
January 6th, 2017  
It usually doesn't get cold enough here to accomplish that but I am dying to try it sometime
January 6th, 2017  
Now that is dedication stepping out in 4 degrees for a photo but what an amazing outcome. Love it.
January 9th, 2017  
Nice
January 15th, 2017  
This is on my list of shots to get, but I'm going to have to psych myself up to go outside when it's that cold :-)
January 16th, 2017  
In awe...
