Dear TN Friends,

I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

This Winter here is not a real Winter. The temperatures are much too high for snow and ice. How different it was in January 2009.
We were ice skating for days under a blue sky.

This photo I made in the Reeuwijkse Hout, a small nature area a few hundred metres from my house. This nature area is bordering on the Reeuwijkse Plassen, 13 lakes with a surface of 735 ha. Twelve of them are peat lakes, caused by peat extraction.
The ideal surroundings for long ice skating trips. But the Winter is still starting … who knows.

Beautiful capture of Christmas past...

Merry Christmas, Peter,


Hello Peter,

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family. Have a nice day tomorrow.

Beautiful snowy atmosphere....
Best regards,

Hi Peter,
Here in Ireland, where I currently live, all winters are mild with lots of rain but almost never with snow. I miss our snowy Central European winters. Your image is majestic, perfect composition with lovely background and breathtaking color contrast between golden and turquoise. Awesome white balance as well. Without doubt the 'photo of the day' for me (even it wasn't posted today). Excellent image, hats off!
Have a nice festive season, kind regards from the Emerald Isle, László

Hi Peter. You may think it is not very cold on your side of the world but to me here in sunny (heat wave) South Africa it does look decidedly chilly!!!
Super shot by the way.
