Who knew bubbles could be works of art?

A Washington-based photographer came up with the idea to blow bubbles in the freezing cold and take pictures of them - and the results are stunning.

Angela Kelly and her 7-year-old son watched as the smaller bubbles froze in midair in the -9 to -12 degrees Celsius temperatures, while the larger bubbles froze slowly, creating delicate frosty patterns on the surface.

While some remained in perfect globes, others began to deflate as they melted, creating interesting shapes.

"Are we ever too old to play with bubbles?" Kelly asked website Komo News.

"I really think that this is the most fun, unique and beautiful series I've done yet."
