This week’s photo challenge is Edge.
Here are a few shots taken at the edge of the lake Geneve near Morges.
The flowers at the edges of the lake were also lovely.
Surely, there are people like me, relaxing near to the water edge.
These are wonderful views to be enjoyed.
The vineyard overlooking the Lake of Geneve, Switzerland, a very harmonious environment, is an UNESCO site.
The Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, stretching for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva from the Chateau de Chillon to the eastern outskirts of Lausanne in the Vaud region, cover the lower slopes of the mountainside between the villages and the lake. Although there is some evidence that vines were grown in the area in Roman times, the present vine terraces can be traced back to the 11th century, when Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries controlled the area. It is an outstanding example of a centuries-long interaction between people and their environment, developed to optimize local resources so as to produce a highly valued wine that has always been important to the economy.
The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.
This picture was taken at Lake Geneva at Morges, Switzerland.
The sea and the lake are basically of the same color, highlighted by some clouds and yachts.
It was a view to behold.

The theme for this week’s Travel Theme is Arches.
I like arches. Structurally, they are a very efficient of supporting weight from above, without causing tension in the elements.
Architecturally, they look pleasing too.
The arches shown here are from a building in Geneve, Switzerland.
From the outside the building is interesting too. It has multiple arches and there are also ramps going up at a slant.
All these make for an interesting structure!
