That is one raging torrent of a river - looks like one tree has been knocked over. I shudder to imagine what it would be like to fall in. You must have been either on a boat or a bridge to take this. Good composition to fill the frame with so much of this turbulent icy water. Strong angle, too. Well done with your little Canon.

this is a very impressive photo. The force, consistency and colours of the water look formidable. Your point of view is breathtaking, bringing us so close to the roaring river and offering a great deep view up against its flow. Sharpness, lighting and colours are superb. An extraordinary sight, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good evening,

This is a subject we don't get to see very often! In fact, i don't think i've ever seen it here on TE.
isn't it cool how the water looks brown in places, i wonder why that is with these rapids.
Living in Canada all my life, i'm very used to seeing these rapids in our country sides.
the photo is very well exposed, clear and sharp.

Hi dear Kari
Wow that is some seriously wild and dangerous looking water! I hope you weren't in a raft or canoe, but instead were on dry land or a safe bridge. The water really does look terrifying. Even the colours aswell as the textures scare me. A great photo as it immediately invokes an emotion. Excellent depth of field too.
Warm regards and thanks for sharing

Good morning Kari,
The picture of massive flood, due to melting snow, impressive as it looks - yet, has a projected association with global-warming. Just red about the ice-cup in Greenland, lowest summer ice levele sinced measured.
A beautiful forest pic. in Lapland, strong current collected well, with notable depth.
enjoy a nice weekend,

Hi Kari !!
This is the way I like to see the rivers, with fast flowing water and with crystal clear water.
This is an excellent image, exposure, sharpness and depth of field are perfect.
