ICE at Boppard.

The forecast had been for poor weather.

The forecast was wrong.

Although there were clouds at dawn, by 9am sunlight bathed the bend in the Rhein Valley near Boppard, Germany.

I was here my old pal TSH and I set up to make the most of the morning light.

In our first few minutes the barrier at the near by level crossing dropped, alerting us to an approaching train. Two as it happened.

A southward ICE and a north IC train.

The left bank of the Rhein is known as being a busy place, and this morning it lived up to its reputation.

I made this trailing view of the ICE train using my FujiFilm XT1 with 27mm pancak lens; f4.5 1/500 ISO 200.
