Candle Ice on Shot with Johan in action on the dike at Stavoren

Candle ice is a form of rotten ice that develops in columns perpendicular to the surface of a lake.
Candle ice makes a clinking sound when the candles are broken apart and floating in the water, bumping up against each other.

IJsselmeer (sometimes translated as Lake IJssel, alternative international spelling: Lake Yssel) is a shallow lake of 1100 km² in the central Netherlands bordering the provinces of Flevoland, North Holland and Friesland, with an average depth of 5 to 6 m. It is named after the IJssel river that drains into it via a smaller lake, the Ketelmeer. The IJsselmeer is the largest lake in Western Europe.
