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!
