Ice Marbles!

At last, I really did it.

After about five hundred black and white pictures I thought it was finally time to publish something with color on my website. To honor the occasion I wanted these pictures to really make good use of colors.

So I decided for ice marbles. I filled food colors and water in little balloons, put them in the freezer and on the next day removed the balloons.

I got the idea from Kate's blog where she gives easy to follow step by step instructions on how to make your own ice marbles. Thank you, Kate :)

I started out with taking pictures of the ice marbles outside:

 

But I was hoping for more dramatic light effects so I went inside:

 

The "Making of" :-)

In order to photograph the ice marbles I put them in a huge wine glass. Here you see the original picture and the final picture without the glass:
