Lake Geneva At Its Very Best

Lake Geneva, Switzerland

We had another great sunset in Geneva this evening, and I finally managed to get my tripod down to the lake. This meant I could take some longer exposures and really capture the reflections in the water. Fortunately the lake was calm so the moored boats were not bobbing around too much. Otherwise I would have had some pretty blurry boats in this shot!

I think I made it just in time for the best of the light, and decided to experiment with some new angles. I wanted to get up higher so I could capture more of the water below. Climbing up onto the rocky ridge beside the path gave me the prefect vantage point, allowing me to include more of the lovely reflections and Lake Geneva’s incredibly clear water in a single shot.

This is definitely my new favourite composition from this spot around the lake. Sooner or later I will have to move on and try to find somewhere better, but for now I just can’t get enough of this location!

Do you have a favourite spot you go back to time and time again? What makes it your favourite?

      Sorry I missed this comment Jude! But yes, I certainly am 🙂 I can’t imagine being without the wide angle lens now!

      Thanks Laura, it’s true they don’t. Although I have to say I’ve not really appreciated them enough until the last few weeks. I’ve certainly been making the most of them recently though!

    I think I’d have to nominate this for one of your best, though to be fair, I’ve only just found you today, Ben. (I did skim backwards for a while though 🙂 ) It’s a stunner!
