Fotoeins Friday: S-Bahn Tirol from Innsbruck to Brennero

I’m on board a S4 S-Bahn Tirol train from Innsbruck southbound to Brennero in Italy. I took this picture as the train departed St. Jodok station and rounded the “bend” in the valley. The train is on a gradual ascent, the valley narrows, and the mountains grow taller. The landscape seems to expand, even as hamlets and houses dotting the valley floor look tiny. That’s the unfolding present as the train crosses the border from Austria into Italy, and we pull slowly into the train station at Brennero for S4’s final stop.

I made the picture above on 14 May 2018 with an Fujifilm X70 mirrorless fixed-prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/11, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-d00.

      Hi, Cornelia. I was happy to spend extra time riding S-Bahn Tirol trains from Innsbruck to the “outer regions” including the border areas with Italy and Germany. The mountain valleys and vistas are truly beautiful in rain or shine. I can see why the train through Brennero would’ve been very memorable. Like most of my trips which serve as “introductions”, I wanted to spend a chunk of time along the Silltal (to Brennero), as well as the Giessenbachtal (to Scharnitz), Stubaital (to Neustift), and of course, the Inntal. Thanks for your kind comment and for stopping by!

      Thanks, Amy. The exposure is short which means there isn’t noticeable blur until you get “close” into the pixels.
