What incredible landscape. I was so enthralled by the Engelberg and the Swiss alps that I still can’t believe just how massive the landscape really is. I have seen a lot of mountains, and mountainous landscape, but nothing compares to the massive peaks of the Alps.
The ride up to the top took literally 1 hour and 10 minutes by tram, with three different stops inorder to reach the top. Just absolutely insane! I couldn’t come close to capturing the vastness of this landscape, but here are some of the pictures I was able to take.
If I could do it again I would in a heartbeat! Just I would rather bring my Fujifilm X-T1 instead of the Sony A7R. The quality of colours and depth of field I am able to capture with the Fuji just blows the sony away. You can see some other mountainous landscapes I have captured with the fuji here
This was taken on my way to the tram
After making a quick one kilometer ascent to reach this stop – I jumped off the tram and was able to snap off this shot.. Can you see stop number two off in the distance?
This is what was waiting on top of stop number two.. From here I walked around for a few hours and snapped off shots before making my way up to the top of the alps.
After hanging around stop two for a while I made my way up with tram to stop three which left me at this nice little restaurant and ski stop.. From here I finally took the last tram up to the top of Titlis which is where these shots where taken. I literally felt like I was on top of the world here.
A hanging bridge at the top of Titlis – The wind here was immense and the bridge was shaking like crazy.. but the trip was worth it!
