Frosty Sollentuna

My daily walk between Sollentuna and Helenelund was particularly frosty one morning, this is what happens when fog freezes onto the trees.

Frozen lake by Mariefred

We went for a walk on the frozen lake at Mariefred - someone was having a lot of fun driving on the ice so we figured it was thick enough to walk on. The poor ducks from all across the lake had congregated in one area where someone had broken the ice to let them access the water. So many ducks.
