Oh no! NOT these again.

Pure evil so far as I’m concerned.

And more and more common in Europe.

I’m told its the law.

What are these you ask?

Sound barriers.

New sound barriers along SBB’s mainline over the Gotthard Pass at Fluellen, Switzerland. These barriers don’t add anything ┬ápositive to the scene: they block the view of the train, and they make for a renegade’s canvas. Photographed in April 2017.

A poor trade off in my opinion; instead of a bit of occasional noise you face an ugly wall. And it won’t get any prettier when the vandals show up can in hand.

They are photographer’s nightmare.

What to do?
