Kevättulva – Spring flood


Hirvihaaranjoen Myllykoski Mäntsälässä kuohui upeana aikaisin aamulla eilen sunnuntaina 21. huhtikuuta. Kevättulvan huippu saavutettiin viikonlopun aikana. Haittaa suuresta virtaamasta ei tällä paikalla ole.

Myllykoski rapids in river Hirvihaaranjoki in Southern Finland was seething beautifully yesterday early morning Sunday 21st of Apil. The peak of the spring flood was reached during the weekend. At this location high discharge does not cause any harm.

Hieno kodin paikka kosken rannalla. - HDR, ND3, 0.4 sec, f/22 - A lovely place for a home next to the rapids.

    A 25 second exposure is very long. Must have been very dark I suppose you use a tripod. Ah yes, I recognise the spot. The water looks like snow drifts in the top picture. The level is very high, I can see water through the trees at the right of the first photo. It almost looks higher than the house. Brrr, I’m glad I don’t live there. Is there any permafrost in Finland?

    • I used a neutral density filter, which reduced dramatically the amount of light entering the sensor. In practice I could not see through the viewfinder when using the filter. A Tripod was a must.

      We do have some patches of perennially frozen ground in Lapland, the most northern part of Finland.
