Nature Tuesday ~ The other side of beautiful nature

On my walks in nature, I always see only beautiful things. I rarely think that nature has another side. I met this when I walked along the river Kokra.  Kokra in most parts of the current rapidly flowing mountain river.  It originates below the ridge at Karavanke at an altitude of 1654 m. The river runs through the gorge, which is so narrow in some places that it is hardly space for the river. I made a picture after heavy rain. It was raining for several days, the snow melted in the mountains and the river became terrible. It has damaged and flooded many roads, destroyed huge trees, etc. Luckily, he did not hurt the houses they stand by the river. This is the other side of nature that we think very rarely. For comparison, the image of the river Kokra in normal weather conditions.

  1. Oh yes I understand floods. We had our share here with people logging in sand bags around their homes trying to protect them, road closures due to flooding etc. If I remember there is an estimated damage from floods to houses and roads alike of some 30,000,000 dollars. Yes mother nature is on a revenge rampage sometimes for what we are doing to her.
