There are a lot of  shallow rivers  everywhere now.

  This is very typical of what happens to any river as it slows and enters the ocean or other large body of water.  They widen then form a delta, then they make a snake like course through the delta.  We have several rivers here in NC that at the point they become brackish water they form this type of meandering river formation.  May have to do with the slowing of the water and the Ocean tides.  They usually straighten out again as they near the mouth of the ocean.  Very common and yes very beautiful fun to drive your boat or kayak through.  Full of wild life.  I seldom get to see a birds eye view of them.

East River is NOT a river . It's an oceanic strait.

The Olfusa River looks full of silt and clay, very sad.

I was hoping for higher altitude, more interesting pictures, like the one of the Chickahominy in Virginia, not boring closeups like the ones they shot of the Danube, Seine, and Thames. Get up a couple of thousand feet and show uniquely erratic areas upstream or, at least, delta patterns.
