Confluence of Rhone and Arve Rivers | Geneva, Switzerland

The confluence of the Rhone (Rhône) and Arve - a unique natural phenomenon that can be observed in Geneva, the second largest city in Switzerland. Arrow, where it joins the powerful streams, is a compound of two contrasting shades of mountain rivers. Water of the Rhone, which has its origin on the slopes of the Aar-Gotthard and the resulting Lake Geneva (Leman) are turquoise. For the River Arve, the source of which is in Graian Alps are more typical gray and muddy pitch; such gloomy shades caused by rapid flow, which raises the bottom of the rocks, mud and dirt.
