This year, Spring has brought us much gorgeousness. Nature is flamboyantly green, the trees are fluffier than ever and the temperatures are shockingly high (31° C)...

It really feels like July, weather-wise and atmosphere-wise. Compared to last year, a summery feeling has overwhelmed us.

Such kinds of Springs are not rare here, but, every time, it is a real pleasure to be able to live as if the holiday season would already be here!

The "Petit Salève" looking incredibly green, as if a jungle would be coating it's flanks...
Clair-obscur: threatening black clouds over the Salève and the strong rays of the morning sun create an interesting and intense contrast...
A mammoth cumulus crowns the Jura mountain...
Thundery clouds in the horizon...
Dark skies...
A joyful looking mountain...
Very summery...
A magnificently blue sky with wonderful clouds...

If you want to see how it looks from my balcony, during a storm, then here's an interesting link for you:

  11. The moon is gone.

    She fled as dawn approached.

    Dawn as a slowly opening eye.

    White sea birds skimming over the water,

    looking for an early morning snack.

    The mirror brightens.

    From a blood moon at dawn to a mirror

    reflecting waking life...


    I woke her to take the moon.

    Her campaign was swift and terrible.

    Metallic and fierce.

    Glaring up in the twilight.

    But the moon was both implacable and unreachable

    and in the end the war against the moon failed.

    As dawn rose slowly from her bed, the moon slipped away.

    But in the end, all that was lost,

    was a little sleep....

    After the storm, my mine cleared.

    And a high wind arose and blew the tropics north.


    running quartz crystals through a blender.

    sand through your engines.

    bubble in your bays.

    estuaries reaching out toward forbidden seas...

    sand through your eyes.
