3 hours of ambience. The busy river Waal flows right past the city of Zaltbommel.
Hoog water uiterwaard Waal bij Zaltbommel 01 Hoog water uiterwaard Waal bij Zaltbommel 02
Today the water is high (5.07 +NAP and rises 1 cm every hour and there is 4000 m3 of water / sec. passing the river). A lot of rain has fallen in Germany and France. The Netherlands is the drain of Europe's water. It gives a lot of attention from the people. One after the other comes to watch the river.
In addition to the constant shipping and the waves, you also hear people, birds, dogs and traffic. The carillon of the city can be heard regularly. A great opportunity to put down my equipment and listen to what is happening. Do you also listen?
