It does not happen every year that people can skate on the Amsterdam canals.This one was sent to me by Philine who happened to be there with her Ixus II.

Wow ! looks like a painting…wonderful light and scenery!

I cried when I first saw this, Wim (via Astrid, via Philine). It has gotten around and appropriately so. I cried because I could have seen this with my own eyes…but not this time. Maybe the next time! It feels like it’s from a day long gone by.

The light is amazing in this one! And of course the skating, which is a pretty special sight as well! Well done Philine!

Wow, such a great light! I agree with Jasper, those skating people are a special and nice sight. Well done indeed!

Like a print from a 19th century magazine except for the glint from the automobile windows. Nice one.

Like stepping back in time.. Health & Safety would never allow that in the UK!

….sigh…..This is so unique and I hope that one time I can take Ginnie to Amsterdam and show her this real Dutch scene, Philine did an amazing job and you did her proud by showing this.
Thank you so much.
