Frozen Soap Bubbles by Johnson.

Who knew that blowing bubbles in sub-zero temperatures could create such beautiful crystalline patterns? Apparently photographer Cheryl Johnson did.
She went out on cold days to capture the many possible ways each bubble would form its incredible display.

When Cheryl isn’t photographing bubbles outside, she spends time doing watercolor paintings.
You can find her art on her personal site, or to see all the different frozen bubble she’s captured, see her Facebook posts.

‘Life in a Frozen Bubble’.

angelakelly1Each winter, when the temperature dips into the negatives, Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly takes advantage of the frigid weather and blows bubbles that freeze and form beautiful patches of ice crystals.
The breathtaking results, which she photographs for her series Life in a Bubble, look like delicate snow globes and Christmas tree ornaments made of glass.

Kelly uses a homemade solution of dish soap, karo syrup, and water to create the bubbles.
While some of the smaller bubbles freeze in midair and fall to the ground, shattering upon impact, others crystalize and retain their pristine shape.

Decorated with elegant swirls and scallops, feathery etchings, and snowflake-like designs, the frozen globes are truly a gorgeous sight to behold in these cold winter days.

“This was taken on a cold winter’s evening from the slopes of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh and looks towards the castle and St Giles’ cathedral in the city’s old town.
Although the day was cold and a frost had already started to form on the ground, I was attracted by the warm colours of the evening sky.”

It certainly takes great skill and very good equipment to create these frozen-in-time “water sculptures”, in every captured frame revealing the inherent energy and the beautiful dynamics of flowing, cascading and dripping water:
Some artists decide to substitute water with more viscous liquids, which leads to even more psychedelic, “lava lamp”-like effects.
But more often than not, simply playing with ambient color and light distribution is enough to produce an outstanding effect. A1Images Credit: Luiz Luxvich.
