On the Drive home from Geneva.

Yesterday was such a beautiful day I stopped the car many times to admire the view which was slightly misty despite the autumn sunshine.

Leaving Nyon… the first larger town after Geneva along the lake in the canton of Vaud.

This area is a paradise for birders, as many species migrate through this “corridor”.

No, It's not “Bridge over the River Kwai”…the crossing is over the Rhone just outside Bellegarde.

Fort L'Ecluse is built into the rock at two levels…in times past I have climbed the 800 steps between the two garrisons. You should be able to pick out the upper fort in this image.

The Dombe area near home…

Dusk stillness.

No..this is not sepia….

I seem to remember stopping off in Nyon on a boat trip I had around the lake when I was staying in Lausanne for a while many years ago. The last shot is terrific - really does the beautiful light justice.
