Frozen Amstel

Today’s picture is of the Amstel River. There were people ice skating on the edges of the river but it still looked like the center was not completely solid. I have never thought about seagulls as winter birds but they were all over the ice.


  1. How scary! I am scared of skating on something that's completetly frozen, so no way I'd try this out. The picture is really nice though!

  2. Well I have never been on a pair of ice skates so was not tempted to go out on the ice here. I did go out on a couple of the canals.

    I have seen lot of old paintings of people skating on the Amsterdam canals but it was really cool to see it in real life for the first time.
