Rain rain rain
Rain in the river
Rain in the Rhine. It seems endless. And it leads to a very high water level in one of the largest rivers in Europe.
Two weeks ago, the water was beautifully meandering.

Soon the river will be closed for ship transport. The bridges are too low to let the tall ships pass.
Time for some photos.

The good news is, that it stopped raining.
Sundaymorning, in the Harbour of Neuss. The water rised about 30 cm in 12 hours
and this 🙂
Thursday, January 10. The highest level of the water is over. Ships are allowed again. And the water slowly returns to where it belong.
My walk in Düsseldorf. I had the plan to do some ND Photography, but that has to wait. I was well prepared.. apart from the Camera lenses…..
Anyway, the water
And something more
The water comes, and goes, and returns again. At the end of January, the flood/Hochwasser returned. A bit less high, but still a chance for unusual photography.
Hochwasser in Düsseldorf
Hochwasser in Neuss
On a serious (foot)note …
It might be nothing new, when I mention that the water can be very dangerous, especially when it is rising.
Still, however, there are people who bring themselves in risk. And not only themselves, in this case their dogs as well. Good that the fire rescue was there in time.
We heard the cars, we saw the boat . The article, in German, is available with a click at the photo below.
THINK, people, do not take any risk, you have only one life!
Nachträglich betrifft es hier die Rettung von 2 Obdachlosen, die den Insel als Übernachtungsstelle gewählt hatten. Es macht die Warnung nicht weniger aktuel.
