Light Interference on a Soap Bubble by 

The phenomenon of light reflecting off a soap bubble is rarely observed. The iridescent colours are caused by interfering light waves, some of which reflect off the outer surface. I used a macro lens in order to capture this in detail. No adjustments were made to colour or saturation in Photoshop, only a simple square crop!

Thank you to all who stop by to have a look, it’s much appreciated, as are your comments!
