RDP Wednesday: Splash

Water 23.02 (2)

I live in a splashy area with a river running through it. The river Aar is not such a splashy event and behaves usually. It is the side streams that seem to arrive when not expected and are mainly splashy if it rains. This one has a few stones on the way, hence the bubbles and froth, but afterwards arrives in the cemetery where it behaves, and like all other streams in the area it finally disappears into the river.

Rheinfall 06.08 (17)

Of course none of this compares to the Rheinfall in Schaffhausen. My son lives in a village near Schaffhausen so I took the opportunity to pay a visit. This is not a splash, but a roar. I am always reminded of the film “Niagara” with Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotton, although the Rheinfall is not so exciting and as far as I know no-one has been killed there yet.

  1. We have many dams around here — 46 last I checked — so we get a lot of roaring water. Niagara is like ALL the dams we have plus another few dozen and maybe an airplane too. It is incredibly loud … and that is a LOT of water!

  2. I know the Rheinfall well and I love it! I also love the roar as you so aptly named it. And I know the Niagara Falls; they truly beat EVERYTHING and is the mother (and father) of every waterfall I’ve ever laid eyes on. Lovely photos!
