The Jet d’Eau is as much a symbol of Geneva as Hallgrímskirkja is of Reykjavík. It is visible from all directions. You can stand next to it and feel the spray on your face. You can watch it from far away, the top of the Saleve and high in the Jura mountains. Most of the time it’s watercolored, but at times the city authorities use lights to color the spray of water.
On this particular day I was making my way through Cologny and stopped in a beautiful field to take a photo of the city and its symbol.
