The second photo from the top is the ice rink, it's an inundated field, which will be frozen over in case of frost. In summer it's dry and used for games and sports.

In all these photos you can see canals frozen over. We have a lot of water you see. Next to the canal is either a motorway or a cycle path.I have photos of the same canals in spring and then they look quite different, I can assure you that. I took the photos at noen, so there were no skaters yet, but when school is over the children will be on the ice for it's strong enough.

Oh Wil.......Your photos are the best!! It so reminds me of the Christmas song "Walking in a Winter Wonderland". I envy you the blessing of being able to walk through it for real!

The photos are beautiful We woke up Sat. morning to ice covered objects outside. When the sun poked out for just a few seconds, everything looked so pretty, the sun shining on the ice. Abe tried to get a photo, but the sun didn't stay out very long.

Wil: Thanks for the look into your cold world.

Everything looks like exquisite, intricate blown glass! I can only imagine how cold it must be! I love weeping willows. I grew up in New England and they were always there. Now I seldom see one since I now live in the Deep South.

I love your header photo and all of your pictures! In a hurry right now, but I will come back later and look some more.

All your photos are awesome. It seems like you took them from a fairytale. The nature in ice but so warm in the heart.

Mojo said...

Brings to mind memories of the story of Hans Brinker.

Thanks for sharing!

They are so beautiful... It's as if someone sprinkled powdered sugar all over the place... it's so pretty!
What wonderful photos!

Arija said...

Wil, I can feel you going about with your camera and shooting away at all this beauty. It is like the Snow Queen's domain with trees blossoming with frost creating a beauty more wonderful than blossoms in spring! Superb post.

Thank you for your very kind comment on mine.

That sounds fun to skate on the canals. We have many canals down here in Florida, but they've never been skatable!

Indrani said...

So much snow!
I have never seen something like this before, must be fun to skate across.

Skies said...

I wish I have seen that part of Holland... maybe someday. Those are beautiful scapes. It makes me miss it. Groetjes!

The Weaver of Grass said...

Thank you reader wil for giving me a glimpse of what your frozen canals look like - would love to see a photograph of them with skaters on.

Carver said...

Those are beautiful shots. I bet the children have such fun skating there.

Janie said...

Those are such beautiful frosty scenes of a winter wonderland. Hope the kids are having fun with their skating.

Glennis said...

The iced trees have a real beauty, the canals all frozen would turn into play ground for the children.
A bit too cold for me, but still nice to look at.
nice photos.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Some gorgeous photos there. You can always tell when it is super cold when the trees are all glistening. Love them all

Beautiful photos, it looks like an enchanted forest, especially the snow-covered willow trees. Lovely.

Leanne said...

mannanan said...

Winter is captured perfectly in your great images. Thank you for sharing your world with us.

I think I'd rather be in your world (at least for just a little while) I hate summer! Pt Neill is in Sth Australia on the east coast of Eyre Peninsula - the triangle bit in the centre of the south coast of Australia. Our climate is very mediterranean.
BTW you are the honour of being the 500th comment on my blog! Sorry I don't have an award for you...:( but I thought you'd like to know

Nicely shot photos. In India, we can see such scenes only in Kashmir and some northern parts.
