Photographer's Note

A view on the river from a very good point of view: Pinzano bridge.
I tried to describe the many colors I saw as well as I could.

Some info about this river written by WWF:

In North-Eastern Italy there is a remarkable gravel-bed river that retains the dynamic nature and morphological complexity that must have characterised many Alpine rivers in the pristine stage.
This river system, the Fiume Tagliamento, (178km long) is considered as the last morphologically intact river in the Alps.

Although the Tagliamento is considered to be the most natural river system in the Alps, it is not without human impacts. Major human influences on the main river corridor are water abstraction in the upper Tagliamento valley, organic pollution, and gravel exploitation.
The Tagliamento River in Italy offers the rare opportunity to investigate natural processes at a scale that can be studied nowhere else in Europe. This remarkable river corridor exemplifies the ecological processes and patterns that must have characterised Alpine gravel bed rivers.

The Fiume Tagliamento is clearly a river ecosystem of European importance, since it constitutes a unique resource as a model reference catchment. However, the Tagliamento is a highly endangered ecosystem.
