Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

During my trip between Geneva and Lausanne, I stoped to take a coffee in Rolle. The weather is not the best, cold, rain... and I found a cafe of portuguese people.

After that, I felt myself more confortable and decided to take pictures close the Rolle Castle. In the picture, we can see a small island and many birds in the water

I hope you like it !

Rolle is a municipality in the Canton of Vaud in Switzerland. It is the seat of the district of the same name, and is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) between Nyon and Lausanne. Rolle is approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) northeast of Geneva (Genève) in the La Côte wine-growing region, and commands spectacular views of the high Alps.

It is also the location for the main campus of Institut Le Rosey, one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the world. Notable former residents of Rolle, and alumni of Le Rosey, include: Aga Khan IV, King Albert II of Belgium, King Baudouin I of Belgium, King Fuad II of Egypt, King Ntare V of Burundi, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavī, and Prince Rainier III of Monaco. Rolle is also the birthplace of Frédéric-César de la Harpe (1754-1838), who was the tutor of Alexander I of Russia and was largely responsible for the independence of the Canton of Vaud from the Bernese
