A nice forest walk near Belwood Lake Ontario... and risky footing galore.

@Devi: We kept our footing by skirting around it; thanks, Devi.

It really looks dangerous. So easy to fall and do some damage. For this I would slip some small crampons over my shoes which I keep in a coat pocket. Instant stability and traction.

@Michael Skorulski: We've been talking about buying a couple of pair of those, especially during a recent treacherous walk in the steeper woods of Belfountain , and we ARE going to get these. Cheers, Michael.

Attention with the turn on this superb natural skating rink !!

@Gérard: We kept to the left and walked in between trees until the rink depleted itself. It would have been fun to bring skates.

I hope you were wearing your skates! You have captured the shiny ice beautifully.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great framing and PoV as the meandering icy path leads you to the warm light!!

Maybe, some ice skates are called for here. ;-)

@Steve Rice: For sure.

franz from Baden, Austria

What a beautiful if treacherous road through the woods ... I hope you had studs on your shoes! ;-)

@franz: No studs, but we circumvented the "rink" by walking adjacent to it in between trees. Thanks, franz!
