Venlo Zwart en Wit 6

A makeshift skating rink also sees high participation, although I thought the light was a bit on the lower side.

The motion blur works well with this skating scene, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: They went whizzing round and round, Ray.
I love it when city centers do this, Ayush. Gorinchem also has a skating rink all around the fountain, under a huge tent (because it's usually too warm outside).
Ayush Basu: I like it too, Ginnie. Venlo town center is so lively these days!

The Dutch are skating-mad Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I have no hesitation in agreeing, Chris.

HA.... did you take a try with skating, Ayush. (without camera that it..)
This looks like a lot of fun. Love the movement of the skaters.
Ayush Basu: Not on this instance, Astrid, but some time in the past.
This place was ringing with giggles and laughter.

Did you have a go at skating Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I am absolute rubbish at skiing/skating/roller blading, Chad.
neat! my dad used to make us a skating rink in our huge back yard smile
Ayush Basu: Oh so you are probably skilled at it then, Elaine. This is not a huge one though.

I like the motion blur, the skate lines on the ice and the general ambience of the picture. Likey.
Ayush Basu: It is quite an energetic place, with all the people giggling and laughing on the ice, and it is surrounded by cafes where people enjoy hot or cold beverages, Louis.
There's nothing like lacing up your skates and having fun at an outdoor skating rink, Ayush. Excellent capture!
Ayush Basu: It can be infectious, Beverly.
Skating is beyond my skill set grin tThis picture is very good Ayush
Ayush Basu: You and I could visit the numerous cafes around here and help ourselves to a variety of hot and cold beverages, Bill.
I was more than happy to uncover this great site. I need to to thank you for your time due to this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit of it and I have you bookmarked to see new information on your blog.

I like the ghostly figures. When we used to get proper winters, the Dutch dykes and polders would freeze giving huge skating area. Many cities in the UK had a temporary ice rink around this time of year.
Ayush Basu: I am told that an entire river in the north of the Netherlands used to sometimes freeze over, leading to an event that was roughly translated into the "Eleven city skating path", Alan. As I understand, that has not happened in over a decade or so.
I love it. I love the feeling of it.
Ayush Basu: Yes, it has an enthusiastic feel to it, Mary.
