This is most likely the spring flood in the Daugava River. You see the treeline in the background with alot of ice moving in the background. The area
where the whirlpool is is most likely a flooded field not usually covered by water. Either the flood is usually this high, but it might as well be
that the ice in the river has formed a blockage and this has made the water reach higher than normal.
The whirlpool is indeed impressive. And the power of it suggests that it has a huge underground cavern to fill. Even though it looks small it consumes
huge amounts of water every second. So either the pressure is building up or the water or air has to have an outlet. Even though this is a flat
farmland area not known for caverns, the ground is sandstone, and sandstone is easily eroded and known to form caverns. Just my 5 cent.
But it would have been cool to see a followup. I dont think a probe would see much because of the murky, but who know? And it would have been fun to
see where the water or air comes out. It might be quite spectacular!
