Beautiful shots of the rushing water! The ice and snow must be melting everywhere.

Denise said...

That rushing water is very dramatic. Great shots!

Great captures, especially the first one with all of that splashing water. I'm with Denise. Very dramatic!

VALKYRIEN said...

Ja - det ser ut til at det smelter hos deg også! Vannet stiger i elvene (vi har hatt litt flomvarsel her til lands - men gått bra hittil) og små klukkende strømmer blir med ett store fossefall!

Flotte bilder av vårløsningen! Får håpe det ikke blir mer enn dette!

Aileni said...

Great shots - I'm getting wet here.

Bryan said...

Ooh, that water is wildly crashing in the first photo. Do people on that bridge get wet? I'd hope not as it's gotta be cold.

Will said...

Great shots! That water looks pretty violent.

Mary Elizabeth said...

Vackra bilder av Vanda å (?). Tillhor byggnaden vattenverket? Jag vill minnas att det hade nagot dar borta, men det var val nog ett tegelhus. Rott dock.

Tälläinen siis on silta, josta aiemmin puhuimme. Hieno ja huomattavasti turvallisemman oloinen kuin aiempi:)

leejatta said...

Hurjan hienoja lintukuvia!!Kaikki painovalmiita luontokirjaan!
Mitä linssiä oikein käytät noihin lintuihin paitsi omaa "hyvää silmääsi" ja kärsivällisyyttäsi??

Hienosti vesi kohisee näissäkin kuvissa, täällä maisemat täysin lumen peitossa kuten takapihammekin!!
Mukavia kevätpäiviä sinulle, me lähdemme pitkähkölle matkalle,joten kuulumisiin ainakin toukouun puolessa välissä!

Linnea W said...

That is an amazing river to be passing right through the old town. It has a lot of water flowing through right now. Must be all the melting snow...so is spring really going to come to Finland!?

Mojo said...

That top shot is kind of scary looking! Love it though. And the second one is fantastic with that splash of vivid red against the earth tones. Just excellent.

Tarolino said...

Oh it's not coming Linnea. It is here :)
