Photographer's Note

Saturday morning a very cold morning, excellent for taken a morning picture.
A wonderful strong blue sky with a little bit misty in background.
I have this photograph taken picture as result to the next week for the international contest with a lot skaters.
I hope that I can bring a reporting with more than thousand skaters as subject.

It frost weather brought in some waterways in the province becoming a layer of ice.
Many people already skate, but it is too early for that.
The ice must be flowing at least 12 centimeters are for safe skating.
Since yesterday Brugse check the fire brigade every day on the ice on the Damse shipping.

Thus it takes just for the “Zwin Stedentocht” can take place. It is already ago in 1997 that the journey of 100 kilometers between Bruges and Sluis skating was. Recreational and catering look as from the last time “Zwin Stedentocht” attracted more than 10,000 skaters and walkers. While it is still far from certain that the trip will come this year.
The weather reports are very positive, but the weather shall decide.
Four time Sluis (Holland) Bruges Belgium and back.

I hope you like it.
