Photographer's Note

Sorry - another picture with a lot of snow ...

This is the spring of Sieg river from which the name of the region I live in derives - the Siegerland. Also my city, Siegen, got its name from this river.
The opening of the source is in the small wall you can see in background. Despite strong frost in the last three months up here, in the nights up to -20°C, water still is running.

Sieg river is a right tributary of Rhine and its here shown spring is situated in an altitude of 603 metres in the low mountain range Rothaargebirge in southern Westphalia. The course of the river has a length of 155 kilometres and it meets Rhine in an altitude of 45 metres north of Bonn.
My photo shows the first metres of a long way ...
