Sunny and white "Dutch winter-wonderland 2012" in Rijswijk, Zuid-Holland

Yes, we have been asking for real winter and frozen canals here in the low lands and guess what?! Our prayers were heart! We finally got minus temepartures this week and then 10 cm of fluffy snowfalkes made their way down from the sky Friday lunch time...So today, on Saturday morning, we all woke up to a white and wonderfully frozen winter tulipland (at least in the area of the Hague and north of it).
I got the camera and went out to capture some lovely white moments in white Rijswijk! I did get forzen fingers and toes despite of my thick and warm gloves...But hey, it was worth it. The sun came also out, so I got warm sunshine+my vitamin D for the day!

happy for for you Jana :) and look at that first picture, it is very magical, glad your able to enjoy the fluffy snowflakes.

PS...about the reflection caught in the water drops, I just look for water drops that have reflection, and I guess, looking for them helped also cause my headache :(

It is beautiful, but I bet it is cold. The ice crystals and frozen spider web photos are priceless!
