View of the Heidentor taken from a train

On a train journey from Vienna to Carntuntum-Petronell I took this photo of an ancient Roman monument. The structure is part of the archaeology park Carnuntum. Local people call this monument Heidentor (Pagans’ Gate).

I was especially impressed by the combination of ancient architecture and modern technology like this Roman gate and those modern wind turbines.
