  1. What is the science behind this?
    In the article, it says “At such frigid temperatures water freezes instantly to form a dramatic plume of ice.” This means at that temperature (-40°C) water freezes instantly.

    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    This effect occurs because when someone throws water around, at this temperature, it will automatically freeze. So when someone does throw water around it creates this type of freezing water effect around the image.

  2. That photo is creative and so beautiful. I love how they used natures temperature to transform the hot tea to ice in a matter of seconds.Since it was so cold (-40 degrees) any liquid form would freeze almost instantly.

  3. What is the science behind this?, steam occurs after letting out hot water into cold air.
    Why does this affect occur in nature? when letting out hot water in a cold place, steam will occur and especially in that kind of freezing weather the water freezes. that’s why the lines form, its just a stick of ice.

  4. What is the science behind this?
    ~ the photographer had to watch for certain variables that could help or ruin his shot ex) wind , timing , and temperature .

    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    ~it occurs because the cold temperatures freeze the liquid immediatly

  5. The temp in the arctic circle is -40 degree Celsius, so the tea freeze instantly the moment it leaves the thermostat. The arctic circle is a extremely cold area, allowing for this to occur.

  6. I think that the photographer is using slow shutter and maybe the photographer set the time in order to do that in the photo, Or the photographer could have used something like some sort of trick in the camera. I think that this affect occurs because maybe its the lighting of sun and also that sand looks like smoke when you do it on slow shutter speed.

  7. The science behind this photo is that since the temperature outside was -40 degrees Celsius, any form of liquid would freeze instantly. This only occurs if the temperature gets to below freezing.

  8. What is the science behind this? The photographer had to time out everything (the sun, when to throw the hot tea, when to drive out there)
    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    It was so cold outside that the hot tea automatically turned into ice.

  9. The science behind this shot was that he used the temperature and the calm wind to his advantage. The affect occurs in nature is because its hard to manually make a room or an area -40 degrees Celsius, it happens in nature naturally if you go to the right places

  10. The photographer had to plan accordingly to the weather and temperature, to get the perfect shot. The temperature was -40 degrees Celsius, and froze the tea in mid air when the subject threw it into the air. The photographer was able to create this affect by going to the right place, at the right time. In the article it talks about how prepared the photographer was to get these shots, even down to the science.

  11. This photo looks the way it does because the photographer used slow shutter speed and the sun in the background is making the effect more lit up. The effect occurs in nature because the sun lighting and the temp.

  12. What is the science behind this?
    The science behind this is that it is simply -40 degrees, anything that can be frozen will be in a matter of seconds, the photographer took a liquid and threw it in a sub zero temperature and froze while taking the picture.

    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    Water turns into ice, in this case the water was boiled with tea which turns it into steam as soon as he poured it out.

  13. What is the science behind this? The science behind this is in the photography technique of slow shutter speed, and the coldness of the arctic air was slowly freezing the tea from the thermos

    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    This affect occurred in nature due to the freezing temps, these cold conditions would not be made possible in a photography studio.

  14. Due to the extreme cold and the heat from the tea contrasting we get the immediate directional column of steam. He can manipulate the steam any way he wants, the tea will freeze from the insane cold and give an excellent fast shutter capture. very interesting shot, i love how the rising (or setting) sun is in the middle of the steamy column.

  15. The science behind this is when the hot water or tea hits the freezing temperatures, it freezes causing this cool iced wave effect. It occurs in nature because the freezing temperatures freeze the heat of the tea.

  16. With the heat and the intense cold forming with each other it forms ice and with it said he timed the photo perfectly to capture the reaction.

  17. the cold air allows the once hot tea to freeze as it’s thrown outward a the result is the ice forming from the water makes an arch above the sun. the light of the sun is what really makes this picture and how the small peaces of ice and water perfectly work with that light, another scientific property in this picture

  18. It was a a great and well laid out photo, i feel the reason why it did froze in the air like that because of the temperature and how fast the camera took the photo. but the overall photo is creative and well put.

  20. The science behind this was making sure that it was the right temperature outside, the wind was calm, and the sun was in the right position all at the same time. This effect occurred because it was -40 degrees celsius outside which made the hot tea freeze in mid air creating the ice that is seen in the photo.

    – The science behind this is when the tea hits the -40 weather he freezes because the cold is stronger than the heat

  22. he said he used hot tea and since the weather was very cold so the water froze in mid air. The nature is cold and that is what is making the water freeze

    These photos are amazing! He used the slow-shutter speed method very well, capturing every single little detail of the snow and the background setting.
    Why does this affect occur in nature?
    It’s -40 degrees where this guy is and as the hot tea flows through the air, it freezes instantly almost making it into some kind of shave-ice looking texture.

  26. Its said to occur due to the temperature of -40 degrees, its so cold that pretty much any liquid that makes contact with the air freezes solid. But it does make a good picture.
