Taken at the same spot as January 28th's ST shot. I think they were trying to find a swimming spot.

That place, it seems that swimming spot can be found quickly, and may not have time to change the bathing suit over.

J'ai ainsi marché sur d'énormes glaces, très jeune sur la Loire, qui est très rarement prise dans les glaces... c'est un grand souvenir pour moi, ça doit faire 50 ans, ça ne s'est jamais reproduit depuis... Elle charrie parfois des glaçons, mais elle reste un fleuve très vivant même l'hiver...superbe photo... merci ! ***** bonne journée !

wow these people should be careful, I know it looks frozen solid, but you can't ever really trust ice. It does look ridiculously thick though.

Stunning capture of a winter scene. Beautiful details. It looks unsafe walking on the frozen surface.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Whoa..........I hope they DIDN'T find a 'swimming spot'.
This brings back a childhood fear, that of falling through the ice and not being able to find an exit. ;(

A surprising shot to see people out on the ice chunks. It looks dangerous, but I guess they know what they are doing. A fine action shot.

Another great documented capture especially with the people in the scene to see the size of the ice; although it looks very dangerous for them!

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

Very nice shot, Ruthie.

A couple of years ago we had a huge ice jam. The sound of the ice groaning and cracking is incredible.

12 Feb 2014 4:04am

@Michael Rawluk: Yes, it sounds like a wooden ship creaking. Add to that the sounds of the Canada geese honking it is really quite noisy.
