Flanders Pictures


I took these picture on 500 meters of the Dutch border, Hoeke a small village on 5 mile of the North Sea.
Belgium and Netherlands are middle of the winter, not every year can we do skating, previous year and this year can them again skating on the traditional canals.
Tour skating is a sport and recreational form of long distance ice skating on natural ice.
Another style of Tour Skating, which is popular in the Netherlands, is called toerschaatsen(Dutch).
While the Nordic version usually involves choosing your own tours over the ice, in the Netherlands skaters follow marked routes on frozen canals and lakes. Consequently the equipment used and safety requirements differ somewhat between these two schools of tour skating.
The Netherlands is home of Elfstedentocht, a 200 km distance skating race.



I hope you like it.
