ABC Wednesday - H is for Hands

H is for Hands............

hands in a bucket of dry ice

Spooky dry ice in a bucket.

We watched it "evaporate" this past summer, and my son put his hands in the "fog" it creates as it "thaws".

This stuff is really strange - you can touch the fog, but if you were to touch the actual piece of ice, it would burn the skin.

We added a bit of water to the bucket, and once the fog cleared, you could see it bubbling as it dissolved.

It took almost a whole day for it to melt - and there was nothing left in the bucket once it did.

This is the sixth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. Amazing stuff! It does give a really good "spooky" look to your shot.

  2. Dry ice is wonderful stuff, isn't it? Where did you get it? Makes a great shot!

    On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

  3. yeah thats what i was thinking too that wont it burn

  4. Great atmospheric shot. Dry ice really is strange stuff.

  5. When I got married, the reception was outside in August. I had individual servings of ice cream and we used dry ice to keep it well chilled.

  6. It is a fascinating event to watch, isn't it? I saw a fountain one time with dry ice in it - amazing. Excellent photo.

  7. Lovely and mysterious image
    I thought of doing "hands" too, but I chose "hearts" for abc-Wednesday as well as for Alphabe-Thursday. Both had the letter "H" this week.
    Best wishes,

  8. that is really cool. I always wanted to "experience" dry ice, but was too scared....looks great, though:)
