A journey on the West Highland Line - 9 August 2017

All these photos were taken on a journey on the West Highland Line between Fort William and Glasgow in Scotland. All include something of the wonderful views through the train windows. Of course, in some reflections and blotches on the window are evident, but hopefully create a nice ambience!
