I certainly hope that some of these shots turned inspiring, I lost a pair of my favorite sunglasses into the rapids. I have found a post from some time back that I forgot to post
These are photos I took of the Imatra Rapids before the flow started. The colors on the rock formation and reflection were lovely a joy to the eyes
We drove to Imatra in the afternoon our aim to see the Imatrankoski flow, (“The Imatra Rapid”) is a rapid on the Vuoksi River in Imatra. It has been a famous tourist attraction since the late 1700s. The Vuoksi River and Imatrankoski were born about 5,000 BP as the waters of the Saimaa Lake penetrated the Salpausselkä ridge due to post-glacial rebound, forming a river flowing into the Lake Ladoga.It is also one of the National landscapes of Finland. Since 1929 the rapid has been blocked by a dam . Today, the dam is opened daily between June and August at 6 PM with the music of Sibelius playing in the background. Not that you can hear it down stream where we wnnt to watch it. The raw power of the water is awesome.
Water, I have lots of photos of water, sea, lakes, rapids, tap water…here a rapids.
Winter I am familiar with it too, but I have to say that I do not like it! Even if it can be so beautiful when we have fresh snow and sunshine. That is not often, but here are few winter shots.
The first one is of me trying to cath the light. Sorry for a repeat subject, but these photos are so much about catching light I picke few more from my files.

This week’s Challenge is: Black and White!
I find that when photographing nature in black and white has to have good shadows and light all in balance, also I find that graphic shapes come out looking best. Tree trunks, roads, flowers with graphic shape…here are some of my shots.
