The Jungfrau is a mountain near Interlaken, Switzerland which may be reached by a cog railway. The views are spectacular and the price is equally breathtaking. These images were captured in the Summer of 2009 but have been processed at various times right up through January of 2013.
Interlaken is high in the Swiss Alps and surrounded by dramatic mountains. The main attraction is the Jungfrau, a cog railway which goes up into the mountains. Some of these images were shot in town others are from the Jungfrau trip. Blue Tunnel was captured inside the Jungfrau complex. Some say the rocks in Doom Castle (the observatory) look a bit strange. While these images date back to the summer of 2009 they have been processed at various times right up through January of 2013.
The underground station is in a suburb of Zurich, Switzerland near the airport. I stayed out there to avoid missing my early flight back to the States, and took a train into Zurich for the day. The next four images were shot in Zurich. The main rail station is impressive. The pedal boats are on Lake Lucerne. The final two are from Annecy in Eastern France. This region is defined by its many rivers and lakes which attracted the early builders of Europe’s cities for their ease of navigation. The lakes are beautiful and draw many people which makes for good street photography. All of these were taken with a Nikon D300 and 16-85 VR zoom lens.
