When it comes to creating incredible pictures of trains, Tamas Rizsavi is definitely on the right track.
As can be seen from his breathtaking portfolio.
In the past five years, the 29-year-old from Hungary has traveled through Europe – sometimes by train, but also by car and plane – and took breathtaking photos of trains in breathtaking landscapes.
His astonishing collection includes footage of trains snaking through the Swiss mountains, rolling over breathtaking bridges in Austria, and maneuvering their way through enchanting misty Hungarian vistas.
Train lover Tamas – who happens to be a locomotive engineer as well – told MailOnline Travel: “It’s not easy to take these pictures. You need to find a special train, have the perfect location and the right weather. I’ve come home so many times and the picture I wanted has failed. But when it succeeds, it’s a great pleasure. ‘
