02.16.2021 Bubble Burst

I am not a fan of having foam in my cascade images, but winter foam, full of frozen bubbles and interesting patterns is another thing.

I like the way the bubbles seem to be spreading from the burst one at the bottom left.

    As we have just escalated to Level 3 again yesterday and are back in our family bubble, your burst is most welcome, and we hope that ours will do so also, hopefully within 3-5 days.

    • Thanks, Rob! It was a temptation to convert to black and white or increase the temperature slider to reduce the blue but lately I have enjoyed displaying the winter images with that tinge of frigid. It has been cold.

    This reminds me of my experience with my bird’s water bowl today. Of course it had frozen solid, so I decided to try and thaw the thing out. After a couple of doses of hot water, I noticed that it seemed to be releasing bubbles as it thawed. Sure enough — those little bubbles were rising up through the ice and looking remarkably like some you’ve photographed.

    What really surprised me was how quickly the bowl re-froze. It only took a half hour, and it’s a fairly large one — about 24″ and 3″ deep. I expected it to solidify quickly, but not that fast. Of course, when it’s 18F, I suppose it doesn’t take so long.

    • I would guess it froze so quickly by being surrounded on all sides by cold rather than the slight geothermal effect of the earth below a puddle or larger pond that takes longer to freeze.That must have been fun to watch the bubbles rise. Neat experiment.
