Brrrrrrrrrrrr... With a Side of Ice...

Perle du Lac : Lake-effect ice on Lake Geneva/Lac Leman : Geneva, CH

It's been quite cold here recently. The temperatures have been below freezing and the wind has been rather vicious and protracted. The result is, the wind whips up the water on Lake Geneva and it freezes on wharves and jetties in really cool shapes. To see a few more pictures of this lake phenomenon, check out my Picasa Web Albums.

Holy cow, that's cold! Though we may be tired of this winter, this was a great photo-opportunity.

Yikes that is cold! I'll have to remember that when I begin to complain it's cold in Vegas.

Totally foreign to me (I live in the desert), but so engaging to look at!
