    A day on the fjord

    We have had a spell of cold weather so parts of the Oslofjord is frozen. Today was the first day with milder weather. I chose the bike with W106 tires because most of my ride today was on tarmac, but out on the wet ice I wished I had chosen my Mtb with more studs. The wind was strong enough to make steering a bit of a challenge. Nice ride though.

    I didn't realize that ice could be that clear and smooth.

    That is one hell of a great photo! You should definiely get it published somewhere before everybody on the Internet rips it off. Thanks for sharing!

    Do you have any other photos posted anywhere? I would love to see more.

    Sometimes the ice is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lake through it, or even see fish swimming around. This can be quite disconcerting. Usually it's opaque or translucent, and of course a lot of the time there's snow on it. I think the ice in the photo was wet from surface melting, and that's why it's so reflective.

    I don't know why, but there's no place I'd rather be than on a frozen lake or river (or fjord!). Especially on a bike.
