Fire..., originally uploaded by AmsterSam - The Wicked Reflectah.

Unedited shot of swans on the ice covering the Amstel in Amsterdam. Taken with my Sony HX1. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop. Dedicated to Mirthe, the Queen of Swan photography :)

For the first time in over 10 years, all the canals in the best city in the world are frozen, and everybody is outdoors ice skating like there is no tomorrow, it's like Queensday and Christmas on the same day, I can't recall having seen so many happy people enjoying temperatures of -15 Celsius or lower in such an active, joyful way as I have in the last week or so, beautiful scenes and happy smiles all around. Today it started snowing again, and there's no sun, we're also expecting warmer weather, so it seems that for now the frozen fun is over, but maybe we'll get another wave of coldness in the next weeks, keep your fingers crossed for all the skating-crazy Dutchies, thank you :D

Have a relaxed Sunday, take it easy, enjoy :)

I've made a movie of the swans chilling out in the Amstel too, check it out on my YouTube channel, thank you :)
