Photographer's Note

After one of the most freezing nights in Dutch history,I woke up early to bring my wife to work
because the roads were very tricky that morning,she was not in the mood to drive herself and later I
found out she was right..
After I dropped her at work,I was ready for a drive and some pictures,the circumstances were excelent,it
was foggy,but also clear with sunshine,but above all
it was extremely,extremely cold.
I had to open the doors of the car with anti-freezing
spray because I just couldnt open them.
It was pretty dangerous in some places,it was misty
I could see only for a few metres,while the road was full of snow and very slippery,the frozen water was about 3 metres next to the car.
I came to my favourite mill near Woubrugge,but was unable to drive to it,the small dike leading to it was full of ice and snow,I would slide off into the frozen canal
So I dropped the car next to a small farm and started to walk over the dike,the sun was rising,it was hazy as well,it must have been well below minus 20 overthere.
I felt pain in my fingers even with gloves,I had to take them off to operate my camera to take the photo
but my hands were shaking after a few seconds,brrrrr...
I never felt so cold in my life,brrrrr...quickly back to the warm car,hope its going to start again ;+]]
