Weekly Photo Challenge – Ascend


When I saw the subject of this week’s WPC, I was immediately reminded of our recent trip to Switzerland and our incredible train journey to Jungfrau Joch, the glacier at the top of Europe.

I took this shot with my iPhone through the (thankfully very clean) train window because I was blown away by the breathtaking beauty of our surroundings and I wanted to be able to record the moment, so that I could go back again and again, and revisit its glory.

The Swiss, in their wisdom, have banned the car from this region, forcing the traveller to leave their vehicle at a station, and ride their beautiful trains up into their blissfully car free villages high up in the mountains.

It is an ascent if not quite into heaven, then perhaps as close to it as we on earth can hope to reach.
