An amazing natural phenomenon that shows washing up bubbles freezing in the air has been captured for the first time.
The stunning footage, which was captured on ultra-HD cameras four times sharper than standard HD, shows a group of children blowing bubbles in a snowy Canadian forest.
However, the bubbles freeze as soon as they hit the sub-zero air before slowly descending to the ground.
Whilst the bubbles are strong enough to be held in a hand, it is remarkable to see them pop, as the ice shatters and flies in all directions.
The footage, which was filmed to promote a new Sony 4K television, is free of technical wizardry.
Director Leila de Blinkk said that she was: ‘blown away by the beauty of the intricate patterns that the freezing of the bubbles’ surface was creating at very low temperature.
She added: ‘the feather, flower, and star ice shapes were so delicate and mesmerising when they reflected light.
"To bring out all these details in 4K was to almost discover a new world that we didn’t suspect existed".
