On the Railroad

I have to admit this right away: I love trains and anything related to the railway. And while these images that follow don't include trains, they do feature railroad shots, taken during sunset. I hope you will enjoy them.

This is part of the railroad leading up north to Mostar and the capital city Sarajevo. From where I took the photo, you'll need about 20 minutes to reach Mostar and a good 3 hours to Sarajevo.


The fields surrounding the railroad. The sun was just setting.


Another view of the track, that leads south to the sea side into Croatia.




As the sun was fading away I took this moodier version of the view before. Even though I liked taking these shots, standing close to the tracks in person always unsettles me. So I quickly finished up and departed this location.


Do you like trains? If not, what is your favorite means of transportation?

  2. They are all beautiful! I love the second to last one. Trains have a romanticism buses/cars/plans lack.

  3. Tolle Fotos hast du wieder gemacht. In jungen Jahren oft mit dem Zug gefahren, bin ich es später nur noch hin und wieder. Seitdem ich hier bin gar nicht mehr....weil wir keinen Zug auf der Insel habe. Sind zwar schon viele Jahre Objekte geplant u.a. ja den Transrapid, aber dazu wird es wohl nie kommen. Krise und Kürzungen von Madrid lassen die Projekte wieder in der Schublade verschwinden.

    Liebe Abendgrüsse

    1. Das finde ich schade, aber Inseln haben sicherlich andere Reize was den Transport angeht.

  5. Beautiful photos, Mersad. I like that golden light in the first one. Thank you for always visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Starting tomorrow, my commenting will get a little erratic, as I'm busy with Christmas festivities. But I'll be checking in on my bloggies! Happy Holidays to you.

  13. There's something haunting about railroad tracks, isn't there? All of these are beautifully composed, but I'm a sunset kind of gal so the fourth shot is my favorite. The fifth is a close second, though. :)

  16. Ohh, ich wundere mich immer, wie kann mann so einfache Sachen, die z.B. für mich gar nichts sagen, so schön fotografieren, daß die Bilder was besonderes werden? Liebe Grüße

  17. There is something about the idea of trains and train travel in general -- perhaps harkening back to days gone by. Lovely shots.

  18. I hope I haven't missed too many pictures in my absence.

    Lovely train pictures, Mersad, I allowed Hubby a peep since he's mad on trains.
