The Rhine River is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe at 1,320 kilometres. The Rhine’s origins are in the Swiss Alps in the canton of Graubünden, where its two main initial tributaries are called Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein.

In these two images we see the rock walls of the Rofflaschlucht (Roffla Gorge) reflected in a calm pool of glacier water of the Hinterrhein. Both photographs are available as Fine Art Giclée prints by clicking in the individual images or the link below the photo.

Landwasser Viaduct

October 29, 2007

Landwasser viaduct by Daniel Kazor

The rail viaduct over the Landwasser River in Switzerland is a 65m high and 136m long six-arched curved single-tracked viaduct high in the Alps. Built 1902 it is possibly one of the most famous railway viaducts in the world. When approaching the viaduct the train travels through the Landwasser tunnel. It had to be built by starting at the end of the tunnel.

The construction of the viaduct is impressive for two reasons:

1. Materials had to be transported to this remote mountain site before construction could begin.

2. The height of the arches meant that traditional building techniques could not be used and new techniques had to be developed.
