That's a lot of water! I can't see the bridge anymore. :shock: Just a bit of reflection in the still water.

Thank you, Dzeiaar, those are interesting pictures. What could be considered a disaster (for the buildings) has been turned by the local people into a positive event. Look at all those tourists! Canoe business is booming! :D

Hello. We were there with our group today and in front of the webcam we wanted to save our photo. There was a local guy on the roof of that house and he said that it is possible to rewind back saved pictures from the camera on looduskalender.ee webpage. Could anybody say, where I can find that possibility?

A lovely misty morning. Lots of stuff piled up behind the bridge.

I didn't know there was supposed to be one. There is a link on the Looduskalender front page that says "day's video," but it is the same one that has been there since the link was put there.

I took this late last night (my night, your mid-day). I didn't remember to post it then, so here it is now.

Happy canoe crowd.

Thank you, Dzeiaar. I don't understand the language, but the video scenes are lovely & give a taste of how it is there. It is so strange to me to see a flood celebrated like this, with happy tourists & reporters. In my country, floods are usually considered a disaster. But here it is seen as a necessary part of the ecology for that part of Estonia.

Webmaster is waiting for the daily videos. He hopes to get all of them, but has to wait for someone else to forward them.

Pinchu, see my post above. If you want, you could e-mail to Webmaster - member Looduskalender - but I think he hasn't received those videos yet.
