Little red train in the Swiss Alps

The Landwasser Viaduct is a six-arched curved limestone railway viaduct built in 1901. It spans the Landwasser between Schmitten and Filisur, in the canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. The mountain in the back is Muchetta, which means candle snuffer in the local Rhaeto-Romance language.


I hiked to a lookout point on the Schmitten side in the morning. The light was not too good, so I came back in the late afternoon. This time the light was perfect towards sunset.


I processed a paintery and a balanced HDR photo from a RAW exposure, merged them selectively, and carefully adjusted the color balance and curves.
