Swept by the ‘bise‘ (as they call it in the Region), the cold wind blowing from North or North-East, frozen Geneva looks somehow surreal.
The cold wind strongly whips the surface of the lake and the splash of the waves freezes, transforming all surrounding objects in ice sculptures.
The freezing splashes look like small crystals in the light.
Sadly, a sailing boat, covered with ice, is getting sucked into the lake…
… Until it finally sinks in the cold water of Lake Geneva.
Despite the wind and the terrible cold, the sunset on the lakeside is beautiful. Once again, nature revealed itself in all its power and beauty.
All photos were taken by my best friend Stefano, who lives in Geneva and braved the wind and the cold of the city lashed by the freezing ‘bise’.
