Fun with the Polar Vortex: Freezing Soap Bubbles

As long as you're in sub-zero temperatures, you might as well enjoy it. During the recent polar vortex I shot video and stills of frozen soap bubbles. I was treated to the swirling snowflake pattern in the screen capture above.

This is a composite of segments I shot between 8:23 a.m. and 9:24 a.m. on January 6, 2014, in Joplin, Missouri. The temperature when I started was -11 °F; when I finished it had risen to -8 °F.

I particularly enjoyed these fractals.

This is one of the few stills I shot, concentrating instead on the video.

And this is a close-up of the crystalline structure of a broken bubble.

Love all your work. The bubbles are outstanding.
