It's watery wednesday again!

Long time no WW, but now I had just a perfect photo for Watery Wednesday.

Yes, it is a swimming hole in ice. They do swim in it during winter.
At the time when this photo was taken there were nobody since the sauna wasn't open yet.
After a little while it will be full of winter swimmers.

If you take a close look you might see there is a water pump for keeping it open since temperature is pretty low, about -22 Celsius.

Might just be the coolest hobby of them all?
