Ice Storm over Geneva, Switzerland

After a conjunction of intense cold (-10 to -18 degrees Centigrade), plus very strong winds, blowing at over 100 kmh (70 mph), the waves got so harsh that they passed over the dikes and the droplets immediatly froze everything they touched !

NOTE #1 ! After several people asking if these photos were shot at a place named "Lake Geneva" in Wisconsin, USA, I certify that it is NOT ! I was born in Geneva, Switzerland, and still live there ! I guess the "original" city of Geneva, Switzerland, allready existed centuries before Americas were even discovered...

NOTE #2 ! Many people mentionned a "PowerPoint presentation" they saw... I just want to make clear that it hasn't got anything to do with me, nor that any of my images were used in it... Some other photographer did it, using his own photographs !
