That picture is so pretty -- giving us a slightly wider view than the "flood watch" camera, at least last years.

I went to the link posted on the 2010 topic - the first post. The date/time stamp shows today's date. It's pretty, but no melt water yet.

The link to the Looduskalender article about this year's Soomaa webcam is now on the first post on this page.

That is true, we changed lenses in summer (when flood cam turns to meadow+river+bridge cam :). Now it is 90 degrees angle.

Big flood is about to come but at least last week the main issue in Soomaa was snow (like all over Estonia). This is how Ingatsi hiking trail in Soomaa was looking like on last Monday
