Wow, a lot of great subject matter for fun with your camera. You could fill up a memory card pretty fast with that kind of scenery. What lake is that? I think my wife & I visited that lake when we were in Switzerland in 1985, but I can't remember the name of the lake. By the way, it looks like there may be some UV effect. Have you considered a UV filter?

Anglophones call it Lake Geneva, but the local name is Lac Léman !

I doubt UV filters work with P&Ss !

OK, then that is where we spent a day while in Switzerland. We were in Europe for 6 weeks during the summer of our first anniversary with a rail pass, 2 man tent, 1 backpack & a couple of thin rubber-like mats. The ground got awfully hard and about every 4 or 5 days we would splurge & stay in a bed & breakfast. I believe that we stayed in a B&B in Geneva, but I'll have to double check with my wife. That was 26 years ago this summer!

I didn't pay attention to the fact that you were using a P&S. DUH!
