When the temperature dropped to -12°C in Washington, photographer Angela Kelly got an unusual idea. Together with her seven-year-old son, Kelly mixed up some dish soap, karo syrup, and water – and went out to blow bubbles in the middle of the freezing cold. Soon the two adventurers found themselves in amazement as the frost created magical designs in the larger bubbles, whereas the smaller ones froze and shattered as they hit the ground.
Before the sun came up, they would freeze entirely and behave as though they were made of glass.
Some of the smaller bubbles would freeze mid-air and drop like stones to the ground.
Occasionally, the bubbles would collapse and create weird shapes.
