Roof with a view

I always believed that India was best seen from the window of a train, but then that view point changed this past weekend. After spending 10 hours on a dinky little train bouncing its way across the Central Indian countryside, I only realized that from the window you could only see only half of it at a time. The real India can only be seen from here...

@nm - a rooftop ride is a must do, even if it is illegal :-)

@ hrishi - thx

@ blue indian - did the RTM-KNW donkey's years ago, this is NG

@ SS - No tunnels but quite a few covered bridges that require us to lie flat on the roof.

@ Vrij - This is the Gwalior - Sheopur NG

This is a great pic! :)

Did you edit it or something? There seems to be a lot of motion blur and noise, even though the shutter speed was like lightning and you've got an ISO of 400 on this one...

Whatever, the way it looks is beautiful :). Great capture...
