Photographer's Note

Our tour in Germany started in a big spring-rainstorm that lasted 4 days in late May, and many places throughout the country were flooded.
This is early morning scene in Heidelberg, the Nekar river water level was high with rush currents. This is Nekarstaden, where the old Karl-bridge-gate.
Pic. taken under rain, a bit of a miss on this beautiful medieval-town.
Many local people came later with cameras to take pic. of this rare event in their town.
The Nekar river flows west and it's a tributary to the Rhine about 20km distance from Heidelberg
in Mannheim.
Now the storm had moved to the east, parts of Europe still under heavy rain.
