Resembling a painting by one of the Dutch masters, this was the scene in Amsterdam on February 8, 2012 as children and adults took to the ice on the frozen Kloveniersburgwal canal. Local TV station AT5 reported that an impromptu skating party took place later that evening on the central Prinsengracht canal.
