    The river Isar/Bavaria becomes a roaring water after the snow is melted on the mountains crushing everything which is in it's way. Trees are falling into the water and could get blocked by rocks and remain sometimes for years.

    For me it looks a bit like Alaska....

    Thanks a lot!
    Making these shot I was really sad that no 7 or 8mm lens was available for me. When I think about such photographs, some pics from glassy lakes in Alaska or B.C. come to my mind.
    The shoreline is full of silver wood and the angle of view from the cam plus super wide angle is dramatic. Mostly the reflections of mountains on the water adds more depth. But here it's ok to have only stones....:rolleyes:

    This is one of those instances in landscape photography where the black and white image probably conveys more than the colour version would, a beautiful tonal range, truely painting with light.

    Absolutely lovely, Bernd! Super in all ways and though I've never been to Alaska or BC, this one could easily be seen in Wyoming, as well. Great wild country!

    Thanks Barrie, you are so right!
    in colour the silver of the tree has no visual impact with the white stones of the river.

    In b/w we have more 'power' to see the different textures and possible 'wrong' colours can't distract our imaginations.
