Picture This 177 - Water in Motion

The River is part of my life. It flows from somewhere in the Bernese Overland through to the lakes of Switzerland and passes the town of Solothurn on its way, my local town.

Here is a model known as The Diver, River Thames, Rainham near London.

This stream runs through one of those very narrow cuts in the nearbye cliffs in the village of Ruttenen. If you follow its path you arrive at the hermitage where our local hermit lives.

  1. Hi Pat. I like your shots for this theme. Really nice muted blue colour in the first shot, I presume that's the River Aar? I love that sculpture in the second shot!! I wonder how much of him is visible at high tide? Interesting stream in the third shot, I seem to remember you posting about the hermit on your (Multiply?) page some time ago.

  6. Your first shot made me smile, I don't know why. It is beautiful. And I love the little roboty guy in the Thames and the third shot could be close to my house where I try and walk each day.

  9. Your river is beautiful. Wish I could wake up to such a lovely view in the morning. Such an interesting sculpture, wonder why? The forest stream is magic and secret, makes me want to follow. I also remember the hermit house in a former blog. Lovely entries, Pat.
