Now that the holidays and season of good cheer are officially over, it seems everyone is coming together for another reason: to complain about the cold.

Granted, it is cold out there. (This morning, I awoke to temperatures well below freezing. The fact that less than two weeks ago we had a few days that reached well into the 60s makes this cold front seem all the more baffling.)

Many people use the cold weather as an excuse to stay indoors and avoid going out as much as possible. I’ve even heard some say that the time between now and the beginning of spring is “the ugliest time of the year.”

However, one Washington-based photographer showed that this time of year can be a time of incredible beauty.

Angela Kelly and her seven-year-old son decided to blow soap bubbles in below freezing temperatures and photograph them as they froze and melted.

The results are nothing short of breath-taking.

On her website Kelly writes:

Sometimes in our quest to appreciate beauty, we take for granted even the simplest treasures that can be found in our own back yard. I love being able to show others something that they have perhaps taken for granted and walked by too quickly to notice before. I hope that in sharing my work, it will help others to change their perspective and take the time to enjoy and savor the beauty around them in the most unfamiliar or surprising ways possible.

Indeed.
