Photographer's Note

Lake Geneva or Lake Léman is a lake in Switzerland and France. It is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe.
Lake Geneva, formed by a withdrawing glacier, has a crescent shape that narrows around Yvoire on the southern shore. It can thus be divided figuratively into the "Grand Lac" (Large Lake) to the east and the "Petit Lac" (Small Lake) to the west. The Chablais Alps border its southern shore, the western Bernese Alps lie over its eastern side. The high summits of Grand Combin and Mont Blanc are visible from some places. Compagnie Générale de Navigation sur le lac Léman operates boats on the lake.
