Raining bubbles

IMAG1597

Hi everyone,

Company this weekend. We sat outside during a passing shower and I took this picture of the drops creating bubbles in the water. Any ideas about what causes this phenomenon? Maybe when rain falls straight down? I’ve seen it once or twice before.

  1. I did a study of bubbles with a student a long time ago, David. Raindrops gather oxygen on their way down, as I remember, & that causes the bubbles to form when they hit water (in puddles too!). Pretty picture!
