Geneva's famous Jet d'Eau on Lake Leman; it shoots 459 feet high using 132 gallons of water per second.


Benches and shrubs line the park... perfect for lunch!

Or you can take a small boat across in less than five minutes and get a close-up look at the base of the fountain. This fisherman smiled for the camera! ;)

Nice rainbow over the fishermen's head.. maybe it will bring him good luck.
That's a lot of water pressure, I wouldn't want to be sitting on it when it starts spouting :)

Warm hugs Allison,
Pam

note, its my sister in the photo and hubby is standing out on the rock.

Lovely area, I like the rainbow capture. I just read how to use a spay bottle to try and get that effect with a lot of pictures, especailly macro shots.Perhaps that smile was at the photographer rather than the camera.I'm headed out into a sunny day. Listen to that breeze.
