Ice Fun on The IJsselmeer by Jo Nijenhuis

Camera Canon EOS 350D – Canon Lens 18-55 mm – 1/25 sec.
As Is! Winter in Holland and its so great to see all the people, young and old, having fun on the ice of lake The IJsselmeer! Its 12 years ago that people could ice skating here at the Hop in Hoorn, The Netherlands! On Sunday late afternoon, the sun is almost setting and its still fun, enjoying until its dark!
