Ice Crystals forming inside of bubbles

So, this is what old photographers do in Minnesota when the temps drop. I took these videos from my back porch when the sun was setting at -5F.

These amazing ice crystals form rapidly inside the bubbles when blown onto icy snow in sub-zero temperatures.

I never cease to be amazed at the wonders of God's creation.

Thank You for another great season!

With the shipping season is almost done for awhile, I just thought I would say Thank You for all the great people who support this site and the cameras. The cams are part of my life and are my windows to the world.

Although I live in Duluth, I never get tired of the changing weather, boat traffic, sunrises and people watching through the cams.

Springtime is not far off now and the cameras will stay on so we can watch the weather and the seasons change.

I look forward the 2018 season and my goal will be to somehow get a camera down at the Wisconsin Entry, or. at least figure out what might work.

Enjoy the rest of winter and thanks again,
