Train descending from Schynige Platte with Lake Thun in the background. Schynige Platte railway brings tourists up to mountains from Wilderswil on the outskirts of Interlaken, but only on summer months. This 800 mm gauge rack railway was opened in 1893.

Beautiful landscape and view and the train fits in perfectly with its contrasting clear red.

This is a very picturesque landscape.
The lake in the b/g adds good colour,as does the bright red train suitably placed on the very windy tracks.

Hello Kari ,
A beautiful view of the red train going down to the valley , with an opening to the emerald lake .

trains trains and more trains :)
Keep them coming i guess!
I like that you put in the little section of blue water in the top left, like a corner of a page turned over, it gives just enough color contrast from all the greens.
but the focal point is how the red stands out so well too. again, it looks sort of like a miniature set :)
great view with all those trees.

Did you ever hear a song called 'The Runaway Train'? I haven't heard it for years but your photograph just brought it to mind!
The sight of a train negotiating such a steep hill is very unusual. I must applaud your composition for everything is so well placed in the frame and the train, being red, makes such an excellent focal image.
Have a great day,

So you're Swissing it up too! We travelled this train to Schynige Platte twice when we stayed in Wengen a few years ago. What a gorgeous place. Your photograph brings back happy memories. Did you see the steam locomotive they still use occasionally on this line?

very nice this panoramic view as presentation of the mountain with the descending red train to be the eye catching of the scene.Excellent the light and the colour management of the image.

A classic Swiss Alphine image and the presence of the red train is perfect to add to the composition with the bright red color. The background of pine trees and terrain and the little part of the lake complete the composition beuatifully.

Interesting for the classical tram train still operating for over a century, into the Schynige Platte with Lake Thun in the background. I would enjoy taking the train up then walking back down the mountainside.
Thanks for sharing,

Very beautiful landscape, a deep blue lake with a rock covered by pine and other trees but here the main subject is a red train inclined on the rail, superb composition, well sharped and good contrast also.
MOST IMPRESSIVE WORK,
with warm regards and thanks,

Oh, I see you did visit the mountain landscapes of Swiss. Well, I know some places in this country too.
Very nice composition, the colors are great (especially the water in the lake). Where are the prices more higher in Swiss or in Scandinavia? I think both these regions of Europa are very expensive ;))
