Icy Cold, Winter Science: Watching a Bubble Freeze

A simple science experiment, yet totally satisfying. And the best part is you can go outside and try it right now (if conditions allow). You will need: freezing cold weather and a bottle of bubbles.

great article at makezine on how to photograph bubbles (including frozen)-

"Bubbles get a bit rubbery when they freeze, so when they pop it happens really slow. It was around 15-20 °F and this bubble took about two minutes to freeze. When it's colder they freeze really fast and will shatter more like glass."

Nice! I love bubbles! I checked out the makezine article and followed through to the photographer on flickr and then to another photographer that was his inspiration. Spent hours looking at awesome bubbles. Thanks for sharing!
