Photographer's Note

Man this was maybe the coldest day for a very long time. Not so much the temperature with around - 10 degrees C but the Easterly winds with a little snowfall too, it made if feel like a lot colder. Some of our lakes are free for ice skating, also parts of Lake of Zurich in the Rapperswil area. I was watching the news closely and before they opened this lake, we were on our way. I was honestly scared at some point when we walked over the ice that I had done something to my fingers not wearing my cloves for some minutes, they really hurt but I mean for some photos sometimes you are prepared to go too far ... but what am I writing, you know all what I mean. It is very strange standing on a lake and you trust the lake police that they have measured correctly. They had some doubts if they could open the lake today, the snow had stopped the ice from growing, it isolates it too much. But here we are, we had the luck. I love this moment when you step on the ice, scary and wonderful at the same time, nature treating us with an outstanding spectacle.
