Fatastic capture and reflections John !!

In 1963 the under part of the lake of Zurich, nearby the town was frozen and we could skate from one side to the other. I will never forget this great experience.

that is quite a lake! Are ice breakers used at all?
How about commerce - is it an important body of water in that respect?
