Hello Miro - A shot which capitalises on the both the amazing scenery and the finely engineered railway bridge. One really has to compliment those involved in building railways in this dramatic scenery. Your vantage point shows of the scene so well and I wonder how long you had to wait for this bright red train to appear from the depths of the tunnel. A super shot and one that makes me want to take a Swiss railway journey. Warm regards rosemary

This bridge is wonderful, and so must be the view from the train when passing there! Beautiful composition with the mountains in the background, from an excellent POV! Wonderful job!

Salut cher Miro
I prefer this photo to the previous version of the viaduct. Both are very good, but the vertical frame really suits the vertical tracks and the pylons of the viaduct. beautiful rich colours and excellent sharpness. You handled the strong light very well. Congratulations.

Wonderful picture, beautiful bridge. I would trim some of the track at the bottom. Congratulations.
krzychu30 (12651) 2012-10-16 5:34
must be a real pleasure to travel with the train among such beautiful scenery.The POV you used here is really great and provides us with fantastic view over the whole area.And indeed,the Viaduct is impressive,is not something for people with afraid of heights.
Have a nice day

Ton point de vue est sensationnel. Il donne un peu le vertige. Le train est parfaitement placé dans l'image qui est d'une grande beauté.

Ceci est la suite de l'article précédent, ce qui est très attrayant pour moi. Le choix d'un bon angle.
Merci de vous inscrire pour cette belle photo

This is just like an ad for a Märklin model railway! Someone must have put a lot of effort into modelling the surrounding landscape;) A well organized picture with beautiful colours, a marvellous view!
baddori (19133) 2012-10-17 0:04
For one day you did the railroad waiting for the passage of trains.
The flyover, the passage of trains, the beauty of the valley.
A great shot ... the journey continues.

This bridge is wonderful, and so must be the view from the train when passing there. Beautiful composition with the mountains in the background, from an excellent POV. Have a nice evening,
danos (78112) 2012-10-17 13:19
great and full of light is the panoramic view of the place with the passing by train to be the main interest of the image.I like the created depth,the vivid colours of the image as the woody backdrop of it.Well done and presented.
Tigerlily (2413) 2012-10-17 13:23
Excellentlly taken, Miro. It reminded me of the days when we were travelling on these trains... superb engineering work, excellent punctuality..thanks for sharing.
Cricri (92167) 2012-10-18 12:20
Toute belle cette présentation de la courbe du pont avec le train rouge, intéressante architecture dans un joli environnement vert, bravo pour le POV et la réalisation
finlay (1545) 2012-10-18 16:43
A really stunning view. Your high vantage point is the perfect pov for capturing this shot. The timing is excellent to capture the train as it comes round the bend in the track. Excellent clarity too.
You have managed to capture a shot that makes the viewer marvel at the engineering feat involved in the the construction of the viaduct.
Very well done.
mayjayne (2888) 2012-10-19 7:03
Great shot taken from an interesting perspective.
jcpix (6536) 2012-10-19 19:28
This image really typifies what a train ride is like through the high altitude Swiss countryside. This is very well composed, creating that curve which catches the eye and yet still captures the natural surroundings. Love the point of view and sense of scale this shows. Well done!
ktanska (22654) 2012-10-21 9:07
This place is quite familiar to me, but I've never visited this photo spot. I guess it requires quite a bit of climbing, but is well worth it! Lovely light and good timing.
eldancer1 (20772) 2012-10-21 9:11
Awesome timing and capture of this train! I just got back from California and I was hoping to catch some trains going through the mountains but no such luck. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Love the mountains. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
s_lush (16048) 2012-10-21 10:24
These man-made objects are very good additions to the beautiful view of the green canyon. You have captured the scene under bright sunlight, when colors are so wonderful, with the excellent composition and perfect quality. A great job!
pierrefonds (51000) 2012-10-21 16:13
The length of the train is giving depth to the composition. The mountain is framing well the bridge. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the bridge. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
shevchenko (18725) 2012-10-21 20:54
Good vertical format and bird view shot to frame the magnificent track at the mountain area, nice to see pines are growing everywhere, the reddish train is another sight attraction too, thanks for sharing an impressive view from the steep area.
snunney (72680) 2012-10-22 7:08
Your high vantage point allows us to fully appreciate the engineering of this magnificent railway viaduct as well as the wonderful Alpine scenery. The curving tracks together with the red train bring a sense of dynamism to the composition, which perfectly suits the vertical format. Very good technical presentation.
ikeharel (43975) 2012-10-22 9:14
Adorable moment in picture, Miro.
Those red passengers-vagons contrast and yet mingle with the green mountains and the mighty stone-bridge.
fabulous shot over.
fabbs99 (11102) 2012-10-22 18:53
Its a lovely sight to view the colorful train emerging out of the tunnel with the mountain slope in the BG.Impressive shot and its perfectly good on its composition, details, colors, atmosphere and quality. Excellent job!
Best Regards my friend,
Graal (92158) 2012-10-22 23:55
very nice view. Amazing viaduct in valley and train. Good shot from fine POV. Well vertical composition. Place and photo I like.
Have a nice day.
thebest (4114) 2012-10-24 4:00
What a wonderful construction of this viaduct-railway bridge - I would be too afraid to travel on such narrow passes - Excellent composition & you have taken an interesting photo.
TopGeo (38080) 2012-10-24 5:17

bona (11170) 2012-10-24 11:10
great photo of this train rail and the big bridge archs. But can't image where you where to take this photo. In belvedere?
Great colors, point of view.
The depth of view is fantastic, very striking!
adramad (30905) 2012-10-24 11:38
Fabulous view of this beautiful place, impressive viaduct height and great time catching photo with the train crossing at the time.
Great perspective also with wooded slopes in the distance.
Brightness and superb colors.
amir2009m (288) 2012-10-29 7:08
Very Very Beautiful
marina7 (7160) 2012-10-29 9:34
fantastic place! The viewpoint couldn't have been any better. The red curve of the train really makes the scene, the timing is just perfect.
Robert1969 (6650) 2012-10-31 3:46
A picture withy a lots of beautiful elements:
a beautiful surrounding, the train, the viaduct
the diaginal lines (the rails, the valley etc.)
and the vertical position creates a nice depth.
The light management and composition are also
great and almost forgotten: the timing is great.
COSTANTINO (44115) 2012-10-31 22:31
excellent chosen point of view showing this
interesting railway bridge,bautiful composition
with the mountains i n the background,
must be real a great pleasure to travel
with a nice train like this one
Waylim (23310) 2012-11-02 9:39
What a perfect and classic Switzerland image of the train crossing the wonderful design bridge. The POV from this angel work perfect for this composition to show the height of the bridge, the mountain and the curve of the tracks, you even get part of the sky in there. I try to include as many train in my landscape shots when I was in Switzerland.
sacavem (18604) 2012-11-14 3:08
A trademark in Switzerland, this very famous landscape.
I like the romantic environment and the contrast colours.
jmdias (48341) 2012-11-29 5:06
very nice framing catching the beautiful shapes of this viaduct and the train in movement. nice deatils of the landscape around. TFS.
kato (9522) 2012-12-31 17:50
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and fine tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mountain-climbing train which escapes from a tunnel and runs an Alps. You catch well the curved line of railway and the surrounding green nature. And, it's impressive in tall bridge, too.
Have a good and healthy New Year 2013 for you and your family!
Miguel82 (14442) 2013-02-14 4:10
Wonderful shot Miro, congratulations
A superb construction, like also the surrounding forest
Excellent light conditions, fine colors
batalay (33405) 2013-09-10 15:34
I like very much this perspective of the famous Landwasser Viaduct. The Contrast of the dark arches, the curved path of the tracks, and the verticality of the landscape. This photo complements the earlier post.
