Europe's highest fountain is exuberant today!

Geneva's jet d'eau is turned on when the weather becomes warm, and this week it has finally been shooting water and spray at a speed of 200km/hour (130mph). Weather was wild, windy and rainy, then suddenly broken by astonishing white clouds against blue skies. The fountain blew spray a good distance, so the far side of the lake was probably a more comfortable place to be.
