Taken on our way to St. Pölten – a one-hour train ride from Vienna coming from the train station Westbahnhof. During such a trip I let the kids take their portable game consoles and they play. I, on the other hand, would take photos of the scenery outside, especially of the green, brown, yellow fields. — Spring! The lively colors I always love to take photos of.
Green and Yellow Fields
I’m assuming this to be rice paddies…but I could be mistaken…There are times when the fields are yellow and for sure those are mustard. The ride from Vienna to our destination are full of trees too save for some small villages that would appear in the middle of all those greens.
If you haven’t yet, you can contribute your own photos to our Drive By blog. Simply take shots of the scenery or anything outside while you were in a vehicle….that would be fun – including the motion and reflection from inside the vehicle…
Train from Vienna to St.Polten (St.Pölten)
There are different train lines that you can take from Vienna’s Westbahnhof to St.Pölten, and depending on the line, it can take from 1 hour to more than 2…so choose which one you’d take. We really don’t mind the long ride as we can enjoy the scenery all the way.
Update 2012: The trains now run as little as 30 minutes, much to the kids delight.
I love to take pictures too while traveling by bus.

Great shots, probably mustard or rape seed which is dreadful for hayfever sufferers. Nice shots of them and very colourful, your boys are cute:)
A “Drive By” blog…very interesting! We haven’t done much by train…or bus…but certainly by car and airplane!
The boys are so cute. The fields remind me of my childhood home area….where we had many colourful mustard fields.

The Austrian countryside is so lovely. I love train rides in Europe! I have traveled many time by rail…and, often,
by cruise ship!

Great photos – I really love the contrast of the green and the yellow in that second one. I’ve never seen anything like it! 🙂
Your kids are so cute. They look alike.
