Dear TE friends ,
for you today classic Geneva pictures.
Have a nice Week.
Originally a simple security valve at the Coulouvrenière hydraulic factory, this water fountain has, over the years, grown to be the symbol of Geneva.
In 1891, it was transferred to the "Rade", to become a major tourist attraction. However, it was not until 1951 that it was provided with an autonomous pumping station, propelling 500 litres of water per second to a height of 140 metres at a speed of 200 km per hour (124 miles/h).
Eight 9,000-watt projectors light the fountains majestic column in the evening as it soars skywards.

Wonderful lakescape with good sharpness & color. The fountain is impressive and well placed off-centre. Tfs!

A beautiful picture of the symbol of Geneva. I like the way you filled the foreground with all the water and the sight of the buildings and mountains in soft layers at the background. Thanks a lot for sharing, my friend.
Tiene una buena semana,

Bonjour mon ami Burak,
Par ces grandes chaleurs, il serait bon d'aller sous cette fontaine pyramidale et profiter d'un peu de fraîcheur !
Il y a bien longtemps que je ne suis pas venu à Genève, je remarque que la ville a pris une ampleur considérable.
Très bon cadrage mettant en valeur les éléments importants dans la composition.

The fountain does look impressive. You composed well to keep the fountain off-centre and from this distance it is possible to get a good idea of the size.

Deniz gercekten de bos görünüyor... Bu kadar kalabalik bir sehirde böylesine IssIz bir deniz gercekten ilginc... Bakis acisi yine cok güzel... Perspektif ve sehrin panoramik görünümü de harika...

Hi Burak, A good capture of Geneva signature water fountain in contrast with the city and the mountains in the background. I enjoy the composition.

Hi Burak, thanks for the photo and the note. I have never been to Europe and didn't know about the fountain.

Hi Burek, Interesting view with the very barren hills in the distance. Good note about this huge fountain. Good to see on TE. Murray.

This is a nice classical view of my city and it's world famous landmark. I like your compo with the wall on the bottom right closing the scene and the Salève in the background. However, I think it lacks a bit of contrast so I did a WS.

Burak, that glittering photo gives an introduction to Geneva against a backdrop of a rocky relief, impressive water jet
