Brilliant weather

A foretaste of winter has arrived. Over-night frosts and a cold, dry, north wind has been blowing. Geneva is often under a haze, or even in a fog, from the damp air over the lake trapped between the pre-Alps and the Jura. The north wind, La Bise, blows all this away revealing a blue sky and clear autumn light. Just the thing for a few photos:

Gliding against the north wind

La Savoie on Lac Léman

Pictet de Rochemont

Saint Pierre, Genève

If you look carefully at sky around the gull, you will see the bad news - there is dirt INSIDE the lens producing little dark splodges on the image. Sounds expensive . . .
Update: No, the dirt is on the filter in front of the sensor - standard problem apparently.

Well that's nice on both counts.

It's just to the left of a line drawn from lower wing-tip to end of tail.

Hey, you're on Flickr! Just made you a contact. BTW, how's everything going on the employment front? Hope things are good for you.

Hi Bill,

I guess I'll see you around on Flickr. As for employment: I'm happy being retired and unemployed. There's a story there - I'll blog it some time.
