Photographer's Note

The Jet d'Eau is Geneva's trademark. Water is thrown 460 feet into the air and is visible from all over the city. It is a helpful reference point to find your way back to the center of the city. It was originally built in 1891 and was updated in 1951. 132 Gallons are pumped into the air per second.
Here I was walking along the banks of Lake Geneva after enjoying a marvelous sunset and decided to snap this photo just before the sky turned pitch black. No tripod was used, i just put my camera on auto-timer and set it on a railing or flower pot of some sort.
From a distance the water jet looks impressive, but nothing compares to standing right next to it and hearing the power of the water being shot into the air high above your head with unimaginable force and then feeling it raining down on you. On a warm, sunny day, it is very refreshing.
