We heard a strange phenomenon: it sounded like there was a large flock of twittering birds out on Lieonitzsee, but we couldn't see any birds at all except the odd duck. We realised that it was the sound of the sheet of ice covering the lake that was making high-pitched cracks and squeaks as the ripples and waves of the water flexed it. Very eerie!
In the end my camera batteries gave in to the cold, but I managed to get a few shots before they died completely.
