Amsterdam Winter Wonderland - Happy People

Slightly edited shot of people ice skating on a canal in Amsterdam. Taken with my Sony HX1.

 

Today is a very special day, the best country in the world is experiencing a perfect storm "Dutch Day", every wet surface is covered with ice, the sun is shining like there's no tomorrow and the weather is supposed to get warmer tomorrow, so each and every single person in Holland is standing-by with their ice skates, getting ready to spend a wonderful day on the ice with their friends, skating, drinking hot chocolate, organizing public speedraces and whatnot. I expect this to be one of the best days many of us will ever witness when it comes to perfect conditions to create a wicked, wonderful Winter Wonderland that will make all of us feel like overjoyed, happy children who get to celebrate their Birthday and Christmas on the same day, hahahaha :D

 

If you have a minute, think about all those millions of extremely happy Dutch people today, and wish us luck that the ice won't break, or half the population will take a cold dive and very likely we'll have to fly in lots and lots of foreigners to make up for all the missing people, and can you imagine how mad Geert Wilders would get? Mhuahahaha :D

 

Have an awesome day, maybe I'll bump into you somewhere on the ice :)

 

I've made a bunch of movies of the people ice skating on canals in the city center, check them out on my YouTube channel, thank you :)
