...And Nature Will Do Whatsoever...

This weekly picture makes reference to the one I uploaded two weeks ago. As I mentioned, I had a good many opportunities to learn. As far as some working routines were concerned, I had my own ideas I wanted to test soon. The last time I had visited the Salzach, the water levels in the river and its tributaries had been ultra low, so I happily took off for my second visit on Friday around 8 p.m.. I reached Inzell after roundabout 2 hours 30 minutes. Time enough for a nap. Three hours later I went on to Taxenbach.

There I slept for another two hours before shopping victuals for breakfast. Well stocked, I finally reached the Salzach. One look was enough to kill any hopes of trying anything whatsoever on or near the water. I had picked the very weekend that the Gasteiner Valley had been hit with landslides and heavy floods had taken place all around, e.g. in Zell am See. While I had been driving in the dark I had not noticed anything. That changed considerably on my drive back home, which I started right after breakfast. Giant floods everywhere, and the Saalach, too, way over its normal riverbed.

Here the Salzach is out of whack

The water level you see on the photograph was about 1.2 meters higher than two weeks before. When nature starts grumbling, it may start what we experience as catastrophe, so we better not get her really angry!

Weekly Picture

.

Weekly pictures on my site Fabisch Fly Fishing will be moved to my Weekly Picture Archive after one week. There they will be available for an indefinite period of time in the same scale. If you like the Weekly Picture Page, you may select Google + on my homepage.

.

The Weekly Picture is supposed to deal with flyfishing, fly tying or nature and will be renewed (almost) every week on friday.

.

Seen over a whole year, the weekly picture archive would blow up any reasonable size for a website. For this reason, the weekly pictures come in several archives of the respective year. The number of archives per year is between three and five.

.

Technical info: The size I normally use is 936px x 450px. I will resort to other dimensions only if the motive absolutely requires such procedures. The pictures have been processed in CS2 according to my possibilities

Links to this page of mine will be appreciated. Incoming links will be vetted periodically to avoid any misappropriation. Most of the pictures will be my own, but I wouldn't mind publishing pictures from other sources as well. To avoid any legal problems, I will publish pictures from other sources only if their origin is identified beyond any doubt, and if the copyright is with the person putting them at my disposal.

Enjoy, Wolfgang.
