Some more shots from my long hike through the frozen polders and parklands in Breukelen. Goodness, it was sooo cold and grumpy clouded.

There were actually hundreds and hundreds of geese in the area – I only succeeded in a few reasonable shots though – the one moment they were peacefully grazing, the next they were alarmed and flew up in large numbers, while the sky filled with they loud babbling.
And they always made sure to keep a safe distance from me and my camera LOL – (and I was not the only one walking around with camera or binoculars there… birdwatchers all over the place :D )
