Houses along Geneva lake at Nernier

Long exposure image with houses along Geneva lake

I returned yesterday to Nernier on the borders of Geneva lake. I wanted some images of the pier in the late afternoon.
Arrived soon, i took a little time to explore the village which is also known as the pearl of Léman lake. It's a very pretty place and makes me think to a little Saint Tropez in the Alps.

The weather was less cold than the day of my first visit but still fresh because of the wind blowing from North and giving a clear blue sky.

The long exposure in day light for this image is due to the use of my Hoya ND 400 filter.

Note : Images of my first day in Nernier where posted one month ago on my french website. You can have a look here.

Blue hour on Geneva lake

Although the real name of this lake is Léman lake, out of France it's mostly known as Geneva lake. One part is french and the other is swiss.
The photo was made in France and the mountains in the backgroud are in Switzerland.

During the freezing cold we had a few time ago this pier looked like an artic place with amazing ice sculptures done by the wind.
I could go there only this afternoon. I was not sure to find some ice because the weather is a little more hot for some days but i wanted to explore a little this unknown place.
