Fluid Dynamics #7: Bubbles on Ice

I don’t mind telling you that this one was a bit of a headache! In concept it seemed like a nice idea, easy to implement – but in practice, framing and depth of field proved to be particularly troublesome. The shifting and changing of the bubbles lead to many, many out-takes. I needed a stiff drink afterwards… luckily, I had the ice to hand πŸ˜‰

  1. Amaizing shot! that’s a very fine marco

  2. However difficult getting this shot the way you wanted it was, the results seem to make it more than worthwhile. Wonderfully complex image with lots of details to absorb and admire. There always seems to be a tension in ice — like the water didn’t stop flowing willingly. Excellent!

  3. My favourite of the series. Haha, funny that you had the ice on hand. You’re hilarious. Thanks for your thoughtful words on my blog yesterday.

  4. After the series of red to plunge here you is in the fluids which are splendid, well to you Martina has.
