Dusk light on Geneva lake from the pier in Thonon les Bains.
I usually avoid cities and crowds but when went to Thonon les Bains some weeks ago i had in mind to make pictures of some natural beaches and of the pier. So i left my car in the city and had a very nice (and long walk) along the lake.
Mostly known for the lake and old city, Annecy also has some modern architecture, sometimes just near some very old buildings.
I had a short walk in the streets by a cloudy day of december and ended with a few images i find interesting.
It was a cold and grey autumn sunday. I wasn't inspired by the natural landscape auround my home, didn't want to drive too far, so i went for a city walk in Annecy and ended with a few images of architecture from different ages.
One more view of this place which is a must to visit if you come in Paris.
Note : All my images of Paris can be seen in my french gallery about Cities, Villages and monuments.
A closer view of Saint Claude with its cathedral and some old houses.
The cathedral is more than 8 centuries old and has a very long name : Cathédrale Saint Pierre, Saint Paul et Saint André.
The Maison du Peuple that you can see in the foreground is also an old building used today as a cinema. You can read more (in french) about its history here.
An iconic view of Paris from Eiffel tower, with Champ de Mars and Montparnasse tower which is the highest building in Paris and i guess in France.
River Bienne comes from Jura mountains near Prémanon and joins river Tacon near Saint Claude. Just before the junction, it runs through the city which has many big or small bridges.
Corso Garibaldi is a big commercial and touristic street in Torino. This grey wall with the fashion ads gives a good feeling of this street in winter.
Torino is a very old italian city buit along river Pô. We have spent a few days here for Christmas and visited the amazing Cinema Museum. The image above was made from the top of the museum.
A two years old image of Paris, done from Eiffel tower.
You can see the Trocadéro and its gardens in the foreground and La Défense buildings in the background.
An image from yesterday.
Saint Claude is one of the main cities in Haut Jura Natural Park. It's crossed by river Bienne and known for its cathedral and craftwork on wood and stones.
A beautiful october morning in Annecy.
Not the kind of photo i make the most but i think that this image perfectly shows why Annecy is so visited by tourists from all over the world.
