Soap Bubble

A soap bubble! It really is a real photo of a soap bubble. I've been perfecting these shots for the last few months, and this is the result of lots of experimenting and refining. Probably my best bubble. Bubbles change colour depending on the film thickness. This aquamarine phase is just perfect for creating clear reflections. It's also a gorgeous colour.


You might want to compare this with my other recent blue bubble "Streaky Sky Birdtable Bubble". This one has a simple and single reflection (from the front surface of the bubble) whereas the other one is split into two, where I think there are reflections from the front and rear surfaces of the bubble.


Can you see all the leaves under my feet?


This bubble made Explore! Fantastic!
