I envy you the chance to do icy bubble baubles, and to do them well. Is that your self-portrait in the two big bubbles at the bottom?

Yes, that is I. These, and snowy landscapes. are the only reason I enjoy winter.
The combination of the round bubbles and the more linear ‘underlayer’ is especially nice. Your photo reminded me of some other snowflakes and bubbles: the 2010 Saks Fifth Avenue Christmas display.
That’s something very nice to be reminded of. Glad this image had a bit of that magic. Thanks, Linda!
I’m happy to view your interesting bubble baubles rather than experience them here myself! I’m not a fan of cold weather, especially the older I get! But oh, the beauty that comes with the many forms of water in winter. You’re a lucky duck!!! Nice capture!
Scenes like this are winter’s only saving grace in my view, Lori. I also am not a fan of cold weather and become less so with each new one that comes along. That said, I am always happy for the chance to photograph ice in it’s many forms and shapes. Thank you!
I’ve never seen such perfect bubbles in the ice, and you’ve captured a whole flock of them! This is delightful and beautifully composed.
Thanks, Melissa! It was a lucky find and I, greedy guy that I am, hope for more. 🙂
I can understand that. A friend of mine and I were just remembering when we saw Lake Michigan make ice pancakes one day. It was pretty neat and I want to see more too.
Such a nice photo, I like the bubbles juxtaposed with the ‘y’ of the lines–great composition!
It took a few compositional looks to settle upon this alignment. Glad that you like it, TIna. Thanks!
Ah! The beauty of nature’s trinkets! It makes us stop grumbling over cold and snow.
I grumble and enjoy, Peter. Sometimes you can have it both ways.
Such fun … And to get a glimpse of you!
Thanks, Allison! For a better view click my Gravatar. 🙂 I am not much for selfies but they happen sometimes.
And upon further thought it occurs to me that in a way mine is similar to yours. 🙂 Is that Sadie with you? ❤
Love this… well-spotted, Steve!
Thanks, Eliza. With some luck more to come.
Cool! Very interesting and celebratory-looking. Y? I like champagne.
Winter does offer some nice bubbly, doesn’t it? Cheers, Robert!
Very nice Steve! Great frozen bubbles!
Thanks Reed. Worth some cold tingling fingertips.
Beautifully photographed! I love the composition and all the detail you’ve captured – the variations of colouration and texture and even your own image within the bubbles. 🙂
Thanks, Ann! There’s so much to see in ice…even without the photographer. 🙂
Beautiful title for a fascinating photo!
So cool, Steve. Literally. Seriously, this is a great abstract. All those highlight crescent-shaped lines on the right sides of the bubbles, the warm and cool colors, the tiny white dots and the way you can see through to the wood (?) below. Wonderful.
Thanks, Lynn. The background, which really isn’t back at all, is more ice but smooth and solid. The color comes from the stream bed below. You are right, it was literally cool. 🙂
Wow! Wonderful shot, Steve. A stunning abstract that encourages my eyes to wander throughout the image. 🙂
Thanks, Jane. Like they say, less is more and this tiny bit of the world had a lot to show.
Love this image and well, all of your ice studies! You’ve got so many good ones!
Thanks, Denise! In a way, ice abstracts can be like snowflakes with no two exactly alike. There’s always something a little different.
It’s a compelling photograph. I don’t recall having seen, much less photographed, anything like this. Good find!
Thanks, Alessandra! There needs to be turbulence nearby and this was downstream from a waterfall so lots of air and bubbles in the water as it froze.
Love this. So glad you are enjoying winter this way.
