Thursday’s Special: Here and there

‘Here and there’ is Paula’s Thursday’s Special theme this week. My first photo, I almost used for the WPC ‘Curves’, but then decided it would be more suitable for this challenge.

A few years ago, we were privileged to travel on the famous Kuranda Scenic Railway, from the city of Cairns to Kuranda, the village in the rain forest. This railway, which has been in operation for over 120 years, has 15 hand-made tunnels and 37 bridges, built by the pioneers of tropical North Queensland, many of whom lost their lives while working on it.

Here is a look back out of the window, as it wound its way through the tropical mountain ranges.

Happy Sunday to you all.
