Reading the water

Just because it’s fun! :-)

I’ve mentioned before that I tend to stare at water when nobody else seems to find anything interesting to look at. So just because I’m weird, let’s look at some more water.

For example here. What could have caused waves like those below?

ruderwelle
What could have caused this pattern?

Yes. These guys went past and what we see are both the circular waves caused by the oars and the stern wave of the boat.

ruderwelle2
Rowing boat. Seriously, why would anyone want to go backward all the time???

Ok. So on to the next riddle: What could cause what we see below?

alsterdampferwelle
Bubbles on water. What could have caused them?

Right, that was him:

alsterdampferwelle2
Alsterdampfer!

And this?

alsterdampferwelle3
More waves.

Yes! Him again!

alsterdampferwelle4
Alsterdampfer.

Does anyone see where we are going with this?

Correct. Here.

And a last glimpse on the way back:

Lombardsbrücke.

Isn’t this the most beautiful city in the whole wide world? :-)
