Pickings from my road trip. I love capturing reflections, these are from the Fiskarsinjoki river.
The Fiskarsinjoki river runs through a park-like cultural landscape as you could see few photos in a previous post. Along a fairly evenly flowing river there is some rocky, rapids section. The water is quite clear. The Fiskarsinjoki is relatively flat, although it has a few bottlenecks.
These are taken at park-like section 🙂 before and after a the Fiskars’ mill. The Original was already in active use in the 1620s, the new mill was built of slag brick in 1898 on the site of the old mill. the Photos of the mill windows were in the previous post.
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
Still have to wait some time before the boat can be taken out.
as we slided smoothly on the river that is known for it crocodile we kept lookeng at the river banks to see on an hopefully capture on. We saw three, but only one I was able o get on film. Not the best of picture, still. As we were loooking for the crocodiles, I did take lots of nice green shots of trees and reflections. well at least I like to think so…
The birds looked lovely by flying in front of the sun…
Chapora River is a river in northern Goa, India. It runs westward into the Arabian sea at Chapora and demarcates the border between the North Goa talukas of Pernem and Bardez. I took a cruise there and this one is from there taken at sunset. Several posts following this will be from there.
I have visited several the picturesque villages this summer, this is one of them. There is magic in these in the old houses and buildings. The scenary is beautiful with the old trees and plants grrowing. Often they are located near to a river or a lake. These places are busy during summer season, only to fall asleep for winter, and wake up to a new season in the spring.
I walked less the hundred steps, but I did sit in a car for awhile….I know I’m stretching this a bit, but these are the newest photos I have. River flows into the lake on a cold Sunday day (-9 C )
