Skating on Machovo Jezero

Today we visited Machovo Lake, about 60km North of Prague. Usually there is little snow in this area, but as we drove through the narrow road winding through the alpine forest surrounding the lake it was evident that an unusual amount had fallen. The ice on the lake groaned and creaked as we walked on it and prepared for skating. This was quite an unsettling experience for this Australian who was preparing for cracks to run through the ice and to be swallowed alive by the freezing black water underneath.
