Views on a train journey

Today I had a special question for my readers. I love to take photos on my train journeys. In time more and more pictures taken through the windows of trains found their way as photo posts to this blog. It is time to tag them. But which tag to choose? After a small talk with my followers on Twitter and Facebook, a new term has emerged: Railviews

St Martin Church in Lanzendorf

Church St Martin in Lanzendorf, Austria

I took this photo on a train journey from Vienna to Linz. The church located in Lanzendorf (Böheimkirchen) was first mentioned in 1248. Interesting detail: The tower is tilted. I am also impressed by the fact that one can still see this pretty old church on a free field next to a high speed railroad.

The reason why I like train journeys in Styria: It’s all about the landscape. This photo taken on my way back from Breitenau to Mixnitz made me think, walking barefooted in this field could be a good idea now. What to you think?
