River Valldoela

En lang stund hadde vi selskap av den fantastiske elven Valldøla som fulgte oss ned gjennom dalen.
For quite some time we were accompanied down the valley by the fantastic
‘River Valldoela’ . . .

Please return me to INDEX for a new picture/destination.

  1. A beautiful river and what a view that house must have too.. 🙂

    • Seenorway says:

      Yes, but please remember: They are seeing the river from the opposite direction and –
      that’s quite ‘another river’!

      • Yes I am sure. and also I would not relish being so near when the snow melts..

        • Seenorway says:

          There’s nearly no danger here where the river runs free. The danger comes where the speed of the river goes down due to flat country and a winding river, but when the upper part keeps a much higher speed. Where the water has a more or less free passage, there’s no problems.

          • Thank you for that explanation .. Too many of our own waterways and small dykes that have not been maintained by farmers, contribute to rivers overflowing during heavy rains here in the UK.. and builders building housing estates upon what were once flood planes.. But because the land was available these things were forgotten.. And the owners then paid the price of flooded homes..

            • Seenorway says:

              It’s quite obvious actually? A rapid moving river carries more water through shorter time than a slowly moving river over the same time span. And when it’s the very same river it’s bound to flood where the changes take place when the amount of water is increased.
              From such a potential flood point one needs to prepare an alternative overflow route for the river as best possible.

            • Yes well it would seem many experts here are blinded to the bends in the river and those who are caught in the flood plains are trapped as no one wants to buy a home that is going to be flooded .. xxx

              The authorities live in a vain hope that it won’t rain as much in the years to come, but most ordinary people have long realized that ther will be more weather than ever before. The key word being: ADAPT!

            • Yes exactly that Svein.. Climate Change IS HERE now.. and we will all have to Adapt!!! xxx

    Stunning shot and I imagine that water is freezing! The residents in the house on the banks of the river have a lovely view.

    • Seenorway says:

      Hi, Eugenia –
      Of course, I didn’t measure the temperature, but even if this was in the summer I had been following the river from start, and I did remember the snowy slopes up there into the mountains. Would I venture a guess? Perhaps something like 6-8 degrees C ?
