Les Voirons as seen from Geneva, Switzerland

My first walk around Geneva took me along the western shore of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva to some) to take in the city's botanic gardens before heading inland and passing the European headquarters of the United Nations on the way back to my hotel. It clouded over mid-afternoon too but things brightened up again for the evening and another stroll resulted. That was when I captured the scene you see here. Handily, the sun had advanced on its daily migration of the sky to light up the mountains on the other side of the lake instead of presenting tricky contre-jour photographic situations.
