Watery Wednesday

I took these photos of the Nottawasaga River on Saturday. The river was flowing very fast as we had, had a big thaw during the week. It looked very powerful.

I love how your shots convey the strength of the water.

Great shots! That does look powerful. I don't think I'd want to get caught it that but it must have been something else to watch.

It really is flowing fast...for the Nottawasaga.

Oh wow that water does look strong. Hope you don't have flooding because of all the thawing of snow.
Hope you have a wonderful week.

I'd say "furious" fits the scene pretty well.

Looks like some of the powerful rivers and streams in the Smokies --after a huge rain!!!! Beautiful river, Gill.

Hugs,

Wish we had some water in our River Torrens - last week an engine blew at the weir so a lot of water escaped and went out to sea. Great photos.

I like your river pictures, Gill. We haven't seen rivers flowing like that down here in a long time. You have thaws, we need rains.

The water looks powerful in these shots! The scary thing is that it's more powerful than it looks! Great shots!

That's a current you wouldn't want to get caught in, especially with it being so cold. Looks like chocolate milk.

Sandi McBride said...

Wet and Wild...I'm glad I'm not in a canoe about to shoot those rapids! Great shot, Gill!

Denise said...

Great photos Gill, you can almost feel the power of all that flowing water.

Those photos look like they could be the River Dee in Chester.

That thaw caused some ice jam flooding problems in the usual places every year. I don't know how those people can stand having their basements flooding year after year. Your photo really catches the power of water...Michelle
