Canals iceskating 2012  
Pretty unique event, last time they froze shut was about 15 years ago. You always see it in the old pictures and 17th century paintings, now we can actually do it ourselves. 

















At night there was the so called Keizers race, a short distance speedskating competition, a unique once-in-a-decade event and pretty huge deal around here. (pics from official media:)

Cool post. I was just looking at a photo report about canal skating in Holland on some German weather site. Must be amazing to skate for kilometers.
