Icy Morning on the Lake

It has been unseasonably cold here in California lately, with temperatures dropping slightly below 32F over night. As I scrape the frost off the car in the morning, I am reminded of doing this back in the Netherlands, where I grew up. I remember cold winters there and, although nothing like Canada or Alaska temperatures, I remember it being pretty darn cold, certainly well below freezing (I remember scraping the car was a lot harder!). Temperatures like -7C (19F) were quite common and I even recall one very cold winter which brought -17C (1F). So, eventhough I am wearing sweaters here in California and I hear the heater coming on more frequently than normal, I remind myself that California is still a much warmer place to live than Holland.

Cold can create pretty sceneries to photograph though and today’s photo is one from my home-town. As you can see the lake is frozen solid and there were people skating later that day. This was taken in the morning on a beautifully crisp day.
