Yesterday we had very fine weather in the Gothenburg area, sunshine and just a few degrees below freezing point. My wife and I took a walk around Sisjön (Si Lake, pronounced like "see") south of the city. The water had frozen along the shores but that was it. No chance for skating at all.
This picture is dedicated to Anders Mohlin (molla) who has taken fantastic photos of the skating possibilities in the Stockholm area, for instance this one.
Well, Anders, this is what the ice looks like in Gothenburg!

Beautiful perspective of this vast lake with birds and ducks in the distance. Nice autumn colors.

With the slightly frozen area in the foreground looking distinctively different from the rest of the lake, this picture has been nicely divided into three sections - ice, water and the rest. Pale but fine colours.

A very peaceful and serene image. The composition is minimalist but very effective. I like the great expanse of blue rippling water punctuated by a few birds. Excellent tones and clarity.

Well I have to admit that this is round about the situation even here in Sormland at the moment.
I'v hope that this winter is just a temporary and that we next year will have both snow and ice.
Remember 2006 there was some excellent skating in the Northern Bohuslän.
hälsar Anders Mohlin

Les différences de texture de l'eau enrichissent cette composition qui se termine au fond par des couleurs plus chaudes qui équilibrent bien l'image.

beautiful contrast between the deep blue sea and the green shoreline. And the composition is classic but very successful here, just because the frozen water. Splendid sea view.
All the best.

Nice photo, I love the "colors" of winter, but less like to go there on cold
