If you look hard enough, you can find beauty anywhere. People in Geneva, Switzerland, don’t have to go very far — all they have to do is look down.

Residents of Geneva are treated to some mesmerizing views, because this is where the confluence of the Rhône and Arve Rivers takes place. While this meeting of two rivers may not sound like much, take a look at some of the photos below to get an idea of just how beautiful this geological occurrence really is…

This is the confluence of the Rhône and Arve rivers, a natural occurrence when two separate bodies of water meet.

The river on the left is the Rhône, which is just exiting Lake Lehman. 


The river on the right is the Arve, which receives much of its water from glaciers in the Chamonix valley. It contains high levels of silt, resulting in its lighter, muddier coloration.
