Riding the Flåm railway in Norway

The Flåm Railway, which passes through the beautiful, narrow Flåm valley, is regarded as a masterpiece of Norwegian engineering. The only thing lacking when the railway line between Oslo and Bergen was opened in 1909, was a branch line to the Sognefjord. In order to assure a transport route to the fjord, work was begun on the Flåm Railway in 1923. It was to take 20 years to complete.


I took the shot at 11mm with a small aperture and long exposure, resulting in the motion blur. Made some minor basic adjustments in PS Express on iPad..
