You took your camera on the ice?!? But what a fine place to go skating.

@GJC: Well, actually I was resting the camera on the railing and standing outside the ring. Immediately a guard started to approach me, so I left. Everybody was shooting with their mobile phones, but I guess a Pentax medium format camera smelled like a professional photographer and I think you need a permit to shoot professionally there. Of course I'm only a hobbyist, but I prefer to avoid any discussions :-)
