I live very close to the Danube River, Europe’s second longest river. Saturday was a beautiful September day, warm and sunny, so I decided to take advantage of the lovely weather, and ride my bike the 5km down to the Danube River. I hadn’t been there yet, so I was curious to explore the area around my town a little more. And well, you know me, I’d never go on an adventure like this without my camera.
Riparian forest – getting closer to the river.
The whole landscape was this lush green, beautiful!
And I’m there! The Danube River. You can click on the picture for a larger version of the panorama.
So much water. The Danube River widens into a lake here so it looks really vast.
Facing the other way on the bridge. I’m a real city girl but sometimes I really appreciate living so close to nature now.
Took a break at the local lake , which was absolutely deserted. The last time I had been there was at the end of August, when it was so hot – back then the lake was really crowded. Today, I had it all to myself for a little while.
I sat down right by the water, and enjoyed the view and the sun for a little while. There is just something about water that is so peaceful.
What is the area you live in like? Do you like to go exploring on the weekends?
