I was casualy thinking about what I could enter into the reflections challenge, and if i was totally happy with my `what` submission.

Over a glass of coke, I pondered, and then they hit me (literally :-) fizzy bubbles from the coke rising to the top.

Using 1:1 macro, the edge of the coke looks like a planet-scape, and the bubbles just looked awesome.

Pure chance would have it that I found the first (?) Mickey Mouse formation in my glass :-)

Post processing was slight noise reduction (this is a 100% crop of an ISO 800 1:1 shot, and also very slight USM applied.

I can see the likeness of the mickey head outline - although with an enlarged ear
:-) For me, I would have liked a bit more of the bottom cropped off as it pulls my eyes to the bottom of the photo, when I think the lighter areas at top are more interesting.
