#1: Standing 95 m away from the confluence, looking to the lake

(visited by Ferenc Kumin)

15-Dec-2001 -- This is my second visit to this confluence. After weeks of unusual coldness in Hungary, the lake Balaton is getting to be frozen and the ice is thick enough to walk on it by the coast. The confluence is located in the reed.

Unlike in summer this time I tried to approach it from the coast on the shaky surface composed by ice and snow in the reed. This seemed to be quite a hazardous project, I really didn't know what was going to happen after my next step, so I stopped at 95 m from the confluence (call me chicken, if you want). By the way, the frozen Balaton is beautiful, and unbelievably quiet.
