Clarence-Rockland, Ontario

I found the title, "Ephemeral" fitting in many ways. It took nearly perfect conditions to get this shot of a soap bubble resting on ornamental grass. Time was one of the most important factors as the bubble would vanish as quickly as it formed. The absence of wind, great lighting and a complimentary background completed this short-lived experiment...

Breathtaking! A truly stunning, creative, cleverly conceived shot, which is also very poetic in its very deceptive simplicity. I can't tell you how much I love this image, one of my favourites from the entire year.

Absolutely stunning..Love everything about this; the reflection inside the bubble; just adds to topping...(Forgive me for that one)
