Nothing can be worse than winter setting in. Temperatures drop, the nights get longer, and we often face snow, frost, sleet and all manner of terrible weather.
Photographer Angela Kelly decided to embrace the change in seasons however, taking the opportunity to capture some of the overlooked beauty present in nature during winter. She does this in a simple yet effective way – blowing bubbles and then letting them freeze!
The bubbles form ice crystals within, creating a beautiful looking image that resembles something akin to a snow globe or Christmas-themed glass ornaments.
To achieve the desired effect, Kelly create a homemade solution of water, soap detergent, and karo syrup to form the bubbles. Smaller bubbles can freeze entirely and fall to the ground with a miniscule shatter, while larger ones maintain their size and shape, allowing them to be photographed.
Like a snowflake, no two bubbles look the same, with various mesmerising patterns and shapes forming in each one.
