All The Rivers Run

Recalling the ended summer I want to show you small rivers that run in the woods and fields North of St. Petersburg. I like to walk along the river banks, to look at running water, reflections of trees and grasses. This area is not flat, there are many stony places. The rivers have long been laying their beds through rocks and boulders left after the melting of the glacier. Their course is often winding and boulders in the water formed dams and rapids. Water seethes running through the rapids and a lot of air bubbles can be seen on the water surface.
Here are the photos of my summer strolls.



Among the fields and deciduous forests the riverbed becomes wider and the current gets slow and calm. These are wonderful places for fishing, because the fish lives in calm and deep dams. I often notice fishing rods put on the shore.


Fishermen can even show their catch (it's a bream).


At the end of summer the leaves on the trees begin to turn yellow and the berries ripen in the forest along the river bank.
 

At the foot of the tall pines low berry bushes grow. They don't grow tall ones because of frost and snow covers them for several months. At the end of summer and autumn heavy crop ripens in the forest. Here are lingonberry and cranberry.




'All the rivers run' - it's a title of the  miniseries , 1984. It's about the people whose whole life has been gone by the river. Did you see this movie? 

Have a nice day!

    1. This bream is a typical fish for rivers and lakes here. I do not love to eat it, it is bony.

    1. I think bream may be bigger, Anne. It's depends on the river, sure in Finnish lakes there are big breams.

  14. Hello Nadezda girl ... how pretty is this area and how wonderful to be able to walk it and enjoy such beautiful scenery and sounds of the river. It must also be gorgeous in winter with snow and a bit of ice .. and little wild life leaving prints in the snow ... here I am getting carried away with winter already ? LOL
    Gorgeous pictures !

    1. Joy, I've have never been to these rivers in winter time, because the roads are always covered with deep snow. The rivers and the area is pretty, I agree. I've gathered berries to make jam :-)

  18. Fabulous photos, Nadezda! One wouldn't ever guess they have been taken near a big city.
    I hope the nights there are not too cold for your plants. We had a very short Indian summer, only for one, two days, now it's only foggy and cloudy. :) In my posts, you can see many leaves with fog droplets on them, I think the photo you meant is of a lupin.
    Wishing you a happy weekend and sending you big hugs!

    1. I agree Sara, this summer was too short for us as well, now the night temps are +8 C, I think my pelargoniums are hardy to this weather.
      Have a nice day!

  21. I love this post. The rivers and bush so peaceful. I can imagine the lovely sound of water bubbling over rocks and birds singing. The reflections are lovely. We should all live near a river:)
    I like the title of this post and yes, I do remember the mini-series. It was set in Australia, along the mighty Murray River. It was filmed upstream from the town where I grew up (Swan Hill).
    Happy October Nadezda!
