Winter scenes

It’s been pretty cold in the past weeks. When it’s been freezing for such a long time, the Dutch get a special type of disease: ice fever. Within days, ice skates were sold out everywhere, because for the first time in 12 years, it was possible to skate on natural ice in The Netherlands. There was even talk about a new Elfstedentocht, but the ice didn’t get strong enough for that.

So, we too wanted to go ice skating, but I too had to buy new skates first. We finally went this Saturday.

Apart from the fun of ice skating, the cold weather also provides some beautiful natural winter scenes, and the opportunity to try to make a few nice photos.
