Ice Age

While the whole of the Netherlands was out skating on canals and rivers yesterday, we were out running on the beach.  It’s the only place you can run that’s not covered in ice and snow these days.  At least that’s what I thought.

Since I hadn’t run in over a week, I only managed 30 minutes, but that’s ok.  I had time to take some photos.  I was really surprised to see waves frozen in time.  Not frozen in a photo, but literally frozen!  Here are photos I took yesterday.  Since the weather is warming up I think these waves will melt in the next days and the water will be flowing again.

All photos were taken with my iPhone 4S, which continues to impress me with it’s image quality.

  1. Wow, thanks for the pictures. Really beautiful. I live near the beach in San Diego, never looks like that!
    I lived for most of a year in Bunnik, near Utrecht, many years ago. Remember all the really nice people, plus the enjoyment of prowling Dutch LYS. I still have a few old books written in Dutch, which of course I can’t read, inspiration only.

  2. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t
    show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say
    wonderful blog!
