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.

  2. The motion during freezing is so gorgeous! Are the optics macro or your microscope? Thanks for sharing Dennis.

    1. Paul, I used a 100mm macro lens on a Sony A7R III to make 4K Videos.

  4. Hi -- I uses a cup of my grand kids bubble solution and added a teaspoon of glycerin. I used a regular old straw to blow the bubbles. Takes a little practice and the winds need to be calm.

  8. Thank you...that was pretty neat. I doubt most of us would have had the opportunity to see something like that if you hadn't presented it.

  9. Lovely captures. It's an addictive thing- taking photos and video of bubbles freezing. It's a good thing I don't live in Alaska I'd probably freeze to death trying to get just one more good one. lol
