Riding the FEVE Train in Spain

We have been riding the narrow gauge FEVE train, that follows along the north coast of Spain, through many small town.  It seems the skies are either a bright cloudless blue or, as in this photo, a foggy grey. While the foggy grey skies gives us shadowless images with saturated colour along the streets and rivers, the skies do unfortunately look a little lifeless. They are poorly represented in the photos, as it is wonderful to watch the misty fog roll along the ocean and countryside.

Much has been written of this wonderful journey along the narrow gauge line; it is more often used by teachers and student going on a field trip, commuters going to work or those out for a little shopping, then travellers trying to get somewhere. It is easy to figure out the ticket machines and time schedule, if you have trouble it seems there is always someone about to help, and the view is most certainly one you will not see anywhere else. If you have a week for leisurely travel then I would recommend this trip as a great way to relax and enjoy Spain.

  1. Love this image, Janice. I can see the fog almost covering the water behind those buildings. I guess the fog is a trade off, you get a lifeless sky, but it did wonders to the colors and it actually allows us to feel the cool and damp air surrounding the village.

    1. Hi Gracie, thanks for taking time to visit my blog and to comment, I am happy to hear you like the image, yes the foggy sky does help to bring out the colours. the FEVE train has been a great way to see the countryside, it moves much slower than the high speed trains, so runs close to the small town. A leisurely pace for a great view.
