Spring Water

Spring nominally starts next week with the beginning of March. As the earth warms, snow accumulated over winter (plus some portions of glaciers which are essentially compacted snow) will slowly melt to feed some of the mightiest rivers.

Including the Alps, Rhine; Andes, Amazon; Rockies, Colorado; Himalayas and vicinity: Ganges, Indus, BrahmaputraYangtze, Huanghe, Mekong and Irrawaddy.

In winter, the snow transforms the harsh landscape into a soft, pristine wonderland. The first video shows a Google Earth animated journey through Gilgit-Baltistan (western portion of the Himalayas, towards Pakistan). The second vid is at the Dolomites (southern portion of Alps in Italy) featuring Benedetta Caretta with a brief rendition of Your Love.
