Train of Berner Oberland Bahn from Grindelwald between stops of Burglauenen and Lütschental. Grindelwald is a major holiday destination and train connections are frequent, half hourly most of the day. Wetterhorn (3701 m) in the background.

Beautiful view of the charming place that makes me feel like stepping right into it immediately. The different elements combined well to form a harmonious composition with excellent colours and pin sharp clarity.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a nice Sunday

This couldn't be anywhere else but Switzerland with its iconic mountain scenery, a neat looking train and people enjoying the mountain roads with bicycles. Beautifully taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

WE don't usually see photographs of trains in Switzerland, although all the other beautiful elements are perfectly typical of Switzerland.
I actually really like how you have used the train as a lead into the hills and mountains and to give a good sense of perspective..
Is there a little envy from the cyclists, wishing they had taken the train instead!!
Have a lovely Sunday,

This is a nicely composed shot consisting of many fine points of interest. The bike riders and train add life and direction to the scene. The lighting and colors are great as is the photo's sharpness and DOF.

This is a great shot just packed with lovely and interesting details. The Swiss tourism agancies probably already have enough attractive photos, otherwise they would be happy to use this. You found a perfect POV for this photo.

this picture is very lovely and pleasant, the description of the mountainous scenery is superb and becomes even more interesting with the juxtaposition of train and bikes at different levels and moving to different directions. A very effective composition with great perspective. The sunshine and the colours are beautiful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Makes you wonder whether the two people regretted not taking this train when it passed them, although it might have been going in the opposite direction of course and they wouldn't have been able to admire this beautiful mountain lanscape in a similar way then. Nice juxtaposition of the two different means of transportation.
