The good thing about taking a 6am train is (in the summer) that, while you don’t catch the dawn, you do get to see some lovely countryside with the sun still low on the horizon. The compartment I was in only had one window that opened, and it faced east (the train I was on went pretty much straight southwards all the way), so there’s lots of back light in these shots. And I know that popular wisdom tells you to avoid backlighting, but, you know, I actually kind of like it. Certainly on sunny late spring mornings. Thus, have a photograph of Schleswig-Holstein, somewhere between Flensburg and the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Kiel Canal).
