The Fjord of Geneva Lake

Philippe Boucher is working on the project "The Fjord of Geneva Lake", a 52-minute documentary produced in collaboration with the Swiss national television channel RTS. This film is an exceptional chapter of Planet Mosaic and a great favorite for Philippe.

During a preparatory trip to Spitsbergen (Svalbard), I was extraordinarily lucky enough to witness an amazing natural phenomenon. The “ice crystal lights” do not scintillate like the Aurora Borealis, but they are much rarer (the last time they were seen in Svalbard was 12 years ago). Extremely low air temperatures at very high altitude lead to the formation of ice crystals that reflect rays of sunlight from the south in an incredible display of reds and violets. This magnificent spectacle is even more impressive given that Svalbard is usually plunged into 24-hour darkness at this time of year.

I am currently preparing future film shoots for Planet Mosaic. Our series is showing nature through the eyes of people who care passionately about a specific area of the planet.
The next documentaries of Planet Mosaic will be part of a series of several films called "The Water Odyssey." The first step will be "The Fjord of Geneva" then the other chapters will be realized in Svalbard, Norway and Bhutan.
