HDR in Helsinki: Flood


Vanhankaupunginkoski (Rapid of the Old Town) is a major rapid in Helsinki. In springtime there are also floods: ice and snow melts up the river and bring masses of water down the rapid. In the photo you can see an iron fence. On the left hand side is the rapid and on the right hand side a footpath. Now the rapid has claimed the path too. One jogger told me that there might even more water later. Some joggers and walkers didn’t even go there but turned around behind us. We saw several bicyclers taking this flooded route: at least they didn’t get their shoes shitty.
