I took this image for a Challenge. It seemed easy enough….so I thought. lol Just fill a glass with cold water…plunge a flower into it….and catch the bubbles. :)) You should try it. It really was fun….but not as easy as it sounds. In this particular image, one of the bubbles was out near the bottom catching a reflection of the glass bottom and the other bubble was still on it’s way out.
Taken on the railing of my deck in my yard in Amherst, Virginia with my Canon Powershot SX110 IS….set on macro…..and cropped in just a little.

    Fantastic capture Ginny….Congrats on winning the challenge :-))
    I agree with you, not as easy as it looks and took me a heap of tries too Lol

  • Thanks so much! I think we should have had a tie. :)) You got alot more bubbles in yours than I did. My daffodil would only let out 1 or 2 huge bubbles at a time. They got trapped in the center… and so I put the camera on macro…held down the button half way….put the flower in with my left hand…plunged it in…and then tipped the daffodil just a little and tried to catch the bubbles as they got out. Hahahaha I did get one with a big bubble on it’s way up…..but the picture was a little blurry. Congrats to you for trying the shot and getting so many bubbles!!
