Snow, Castle and river running high

It was beautiful out there today. Even though there wasn't that much snow, there was enough to make the castle look pretty
The snowmelt and rains made the river flood the fields

Sign at the gate "Dogs on leash". No dog will venture here for a while.
Willow trees are swimming low in the water

Geese flock and look for insects surprised by the water

Galloway cows push the snow away to find grass
View towards Germany

The dry land is white with snow
flooded fields reflect the sky
Ferry waits for this loaded barge. 
A sturdy dike, but this one has water on both sides now.
Barges moored for winter
