    Not long back from a cruise on the Rhine taking in Switzerland, Germany and Netherlands. The Rhine is a very busy commercial waterway, full of barges toting oil, coal, gas etc. Beautiful in parts and hellish in others.

    Also took in Mt Titlis at 10,000ft. Took some shots before I became sick through altitude.

    Mix of Canon 5d mk3 and Fuji X-T1

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Quite a trip Pete - very nice shots, and quite a variety! I'm on a cruise myself this week, getting near the end of a cruise through Alaska. I've always been curious about a river cruise - maybe someday!

    hey Ray, good to see you. Fed and watered thrice daily, so relaxing. Can only say "go for it" Our cruise line also does Asia taking in ThaILANd, Cambodia, Vietnam etc (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Angkor Wat etc) Might do a 15 day one from Amsterdam to Budapest next year.

    looks like a great trip, Pete. Reminds me of one of my fave slices of British psychedelia......
