Geneva

Where the Lake becomes the River
Behind the bridge (Pont de Mont Blanc - totally clogged with vehicles day and night) the water is Lake Geneva. In front of the bridge, the water is the beginning of the Rhone river. Behind the bridge is the landmark Jet d'Eau (English translation Jet d'Eau Fountain). Don't get confused by the Ferris Wheel - Geneva is a serious place. But for three weeks in summer, amusement rides and food stalls are erected along the banks of the lake. This year was reportedly good - 5% of the population visited the fair.
Another shot from my old HTC. The white fringing was created in the phone, and I didn't bother to remove it.
