And notice you can't start them skating too young.

They seem to have got the hang of it. I never did :-(

I use to skate when I was a kid, but as I grew older I became increasingly more subject to gravity! :)

Ferreira-Pinto said...

I guess I would have to pass that ... the only skaters I got into my foot where roller ones and both times I landed flat on the ground!
But it's a very nice shot.

And I sure did like the monochromatic one.

Ice Skating! Very cool! I'm still waiting for some snow around here!

Gattina said...

What a nice world ! I post tomorrow tuesday.

Robyn said...

They're not that bad at skating! The ones I love are the tiny ones pushing a chair around on the ice (to hold them upright).

margie kardash said...

no question, in ontario we have more than our fair share of nice barns, dead barns, and skating!!! and no, i did not know where east gwillimbury was!

Julie said...

Wonderful, we don't have any skating rinks anymore. I loved them growing up.

N.P. said...

I used to skate every Saturday night when I was a kid. It was so fun.

Becky and Gary said...

Oh, how I remember those days. One year I broke my collar bone ice skating on my birthday, and the very next year on my birthday I fell and broke my wrist while skating! I did get better at staying upright.

Photo Cache said...

I like the sharpness of the photo. It's a very happy image too, must be because of the colors.

I would have wanted to learn to skate, but growing up in the tropics this was not possible.

Looks like a lot of fun. Nice crisp photo, too.

EG: Excellent photo of the skaters. Canada and skating do coincide.

PERBS said...

Very colorful photo of a neat outdoor sport! I went ice skating when I was in my early 30's for the first time -- it wasn't bad! I jsut never had another opportunity to do it with friends so I don't go to the indoor rinks we have now.

From a nandina bush next to my house - they are red all winter with red berries. Although its been in the 50's, 60's and 70's consistently all winter. The rest from a hike along the Oklahoma river yesterday.

Great post for My World.

Reader Wil said...

Wonderful to see all those happy people skating or just walking on the ice. Everybody here was happy as long as there was ice, but now it's melting again.

Luiz Santilli Jr said...

Wow
It's so cold!!!
Wonderful ice landscape!

Mojo said...

Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Growing up in the sunny South where the only rinks are indoors the closest I came to this was street hockey on rollerblades -- and that wasn't until my 30's. So I concur wholeheartedly... you can't start 'em too young!

Looks like a blast!

Jan said...

Fabulous photo. Your world is wonderful.

Susie of Arabia said...

My feet are cold just looking at your photo! We only have ice skating here in the malls!

Sylvia K said...

Great picture! Everyone sure looks as though they're having fun! Thanks for sharing!

antigoni said...

Great post! Beautiful moments for kids and adults.

Babooshka said...

Snow, Ice just not fair. I really do want some,

Carver said...

That looks like so much fun. The little ones do learn to skate fast.

starnitesky said...

I gave away my ice skates 2 years ago, I hope these youngsters have a lifetime of enjoying skating.

lisaschaos said...

I love ice skating and haven't been in far too long! Great photo!

Gaelyn said...

Looks like cold fun. I'd need double runners. Always prefered roller skating in warm weather, or in the basement.

Kathy said...

It sure looks cold while those kids are playing. They look like they are having fun though. Thanks for sharing you pictures. Hope you have a great day.

Ruth said...

I like all the colourful outfits the skaters are wearing. They all skate better than me!

Larry D said...

Looks like my kind of hockey game! Great photo.

Guy D said...

Ahh outdoor hockey, I love it. Great shot once again, you gave me a great idea for next week.

Cheers!

Feeling cold enough in Delhi without the snow - experiencing my first winter!

Wren said...

Ah, yes, but you can start too old. :) Great photo and great winter scene - thanks for sharing with us.

Terri said...

We never get enough ice here to do that. It looks like so much fun!

Love the sign - except I want to paint over that unwanted apostrophe! That's so wrong!

Sandra said...

I think that I would be very happy to skip into this picture of yours! Bye and greetings from Croatia.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh i think they are having so much fun. What a great family outing

2sweetnsaxy said...

That looks like fun. I can see me now getting more bruises from falling than getting fun out of this though. :-)

Jedediah said...

That looks like fun :)

Leanne said...

That looks like so much fun...it was 41C here on Tuesday so not a lot of ice around here.
