in central Stockholm. The ice can`t be very thick but apparently thick enough for this man who is trying to catch pike, perch, zander or some other specie of fish that are common in Lake Mälaren.

I like the way you have placed this man on this frozen lake. The blue train passing on the bridge generates additional interest. The colors of the man's jacket and the train are almost the same. This is a very creative image with superb colors and sharpness.

A fascinating picture. It feels somehow exotic to see a man sitting on the ice catching fish right in the middle of a big city, although I live just nearby. The picture is very well composed with the man, although small, totally dominating the vast foreground. He is placed exactly at the same distance from the lower edge as the train is from the upper edge. Their colours also match each other well, and the ice and the sky also have perfectly matching different blue shades.
A really good shot.
Ha det så bra,

It is a bit strange to see this lonely man sitting in the middle of a frozen lake, in the middle of a large city! I like the train that is passing behind him. He seems very focused on his ice fishing, and doesn't seem to notice the train at all. Is it safe to eat the fish caught in that lake? I know there is a lot of pollution in the rivers here in NYC. It wouldn't be a good idea to eat anything you catch in them!

A fabulous shot with this man alone on the ice but still in a big city. The train coming across was well caught and adds to the blue tones. I hope he caught some fish and didn't get too cold!

A very fine picture with the blue train and the blue man forming a perfect triangel in you composition. I guess the ice must be at least 12 cm thick here. A popular theme here on TE these days, in Gothenburg they do the same (and they also catch a lot of "sik", although I always thought that was a fish from the northern part of Sweden).

A magnificent winter scenery, frozen river allow an unsusal recreation activity (at least for me / never saw a such).
Timing with the train was extraordinary. Amazing shot, good light and clearity.
Have a nice weekend,

good photo with a nice contrast. The train gives a good idea about how big the whole area is and how little the men fishing is in comparison to the rest.
