One more from the shores of lake Como, from a trip where I took only little Ixus.
The railway north from Lecco to Tirano, running along the East shore of Lake Como is one of the engineering feats of Europe, and offers some of ehmost spectacular views in the Italian Lakes. for the whole lakeside route the line is constantly in and out of tunnels, often, as at Varenna, which just enough space between them to site a station.

Ahhh Richard, I'm up too late, and never active (no time), but I open TE, and find your photo one of the last uploaded. So what can I do? Comment on it. (Can't find the sleep, sang St. Matthew Passion tonight, and am rather excited).
I don't know why you were in Italy, but I can see that you followed YOUR passion again: trains. There's a nice depth in the picture, just by following the eye to the tunnel. The house on the hill adds to the feeling of a model railway. Nice!
Have a good Easter weekend, Rinie

The tunnel is just in the right spot. I think this is the best point of view.

Good use of diminishing linear perspective with the tunnel right on the vanishing point. Excellent colour & sharpness, & good to have the train included in the shot. Tfs!

Very nice picture. I am a huge fan of trains, and this train on a quiet staton presents a nice shot. The colors are good and geometry is great.....

Great POV, and I think you captured the background very well too. Nice!

Une jolie trace verte représenté par ce train dans cet environnement ferroviaire ! Le cadrage est sympa est laisse appercevoir le tunnel dans l'arrière plan !

Spectacular landscape. I can see that the railway is really on difficult landscape. And very nice to see older FS equipment, they often have quite original design. One of those places I wist to visit some day.

A nice station view with plenty of perspective and it's good you got some light here to fall on the lok front.
Have a nice day,
