Fish Under the Ice

On the way home, after an hour of fitness, I cycled along the canal. I saw the goldfish under the ice. And stopped to take pictures on this gloomy, gray morning. Brrr ... how cold. What's life like for a fish under the ice? They moved slowly under the ice. Just like on other days.
 
Goudvissen onder het ijs
Vanmorgen op de terugweg naar huis (na een uurtje fitness) kwam ik langs de gracht. Ik zag de goudvissen onder het ijs. En stopte om foto's te maken. Ze bewogen heel traag. Het is eigenlijk zo'n raar gezicht. Hoe houden ze het uit in de kou? Hoe leven daar, onder het ijs? Zouden ze het koud hebben?

This part of  our canal is frozen

A few steps further, near the bridge (not frozen)

  1. Inderdaad bijzonder om te zien Jedidja, vissen zijn koudbloedig, dus zullen ze geen last van de kou hebben lijkt mij.

  2. Ook wel bijzonder eigenlijk om goudvissen in de gracht te zien. Blijkbaar kunnen ze goed tegen de kou.

  17. Nice city scenes Jedidja. Fish are interesting, surviving below the ice. I like the couple holding hands while on their bicycles, they have good balance.
    Thanks for the good wishes concerning surgery. Everything went well and I'm back home now. Surgery was performed under local anesthesia. It will be nice seeing clearly now.

  19. Guess the fish don't care if they are under ice, as long as they can swim in the water. : )
    Nice pictures.
    Like the picture of the hand holders though it seems it might difficult to that and ride bikes. : )

  21. I wouldn't like being trapped under ice like that. Then again, I'm not a fish.
