Je ne suis pas sûre que j'aimerais monter dans ce téléphérique.
Picturit: If you are afraid of heights, just don't go. There is a train going through the mountain from the German side and than you take the cable car that I showed last week.

Fabulous shots that give a sense of the gliding you have done from the top of the hill, Astrid.
Picturit: This was going so fast, Ray. So much fun but then, I love heights and I love looking down. More pictures to come.
Astrid.
some excellent shots, Astrid. the shadow of the cable car is really small down there. but i do not see any other cars on the return line - did you time your shots to leave them out? or the interval between two cars really that long?
Picturit: There are only two cable cars, one going up and one going down. We pass each other in the middle. It is one with a capacity of a 100 people in one cable car. I have a series of pictures coming up showing how the ride goes up to the top. More to come.
Astrid.
and when i think back to my memories of the cable rides, i recall how silent it usually was, maybe with just a bit of the breeze around the ventilation holes of the car.
Picturit: Indeed that is the sensation, the quiet and the silent and only the wind you hear.
We were with at least 30 people in the cable car and they were talking and of course when you go by one of those poles where the cables are attached, your stomach makes a dash..... and "everybody" is making noises HA...
Astrid.
Oooh Fun! Love these!
Picturit: This was going faaaaaaast, Elizabeth.... more to come grin...

I'd do this Astrid but I would almost certainly wet my pants. The rail journey on the other side of the mountain was incredibly steep, as you might imagine..
Picturit: We made the decisions to take this ride instead of going by train which I intended, we found out that it takes a long ride in the mountain and you still have to go all the way to the top of the mountain by the Glacier cable car... This is a new cable car and only 7 minutes from the house. So much fun going up....

Fabulous images! I would like to go up one day.
Picturit: You will totally enjoy the ride, Philine. There is also going one from Garmisch-Partenkirchen and comes at the same top....We were so lucky with the weather.
We used this website and it is pretty accurate.

I love the sequence going up, watching it from the back of the cable car, Astrid. What a great memory!
Picturit: This was a great ride, Ginnie and more pictures to come. We had so much fun that day. This is a great memory to keep...

This is a fantastic shot Astrid and yes, I see your name.
Picturit: I bought some stocks and bonds here, you never know wink..
Astrid.
Geweldig om te zien....wel wat gemoderniseerd !!
Picturit: Dit is een heel nieuw "spulluke"... en we hebben ook meebetaald aan de afbetaling, dat is big business hier, maar ja, waar is dat niet.... €49 retourtje per persoon, nee, geen korting voor "bejaarden"..
Niet getreurd hoor want dit was het wel waard. Het is een hele belevenis. Er volgen nog een paar foto's.

Yep; I'm up for this. I'm going to stand by the window though, to get better views.
Picturit: I was glued to the window and just clicking the camera.... this is my kind of joy/fun. Loved every second of it.
More pictures to follow, Alan.
Astrid.
Wow, super shots Astrid.......it's great to sit here at home and feel the sense of climbing the heights! smile
Picturit: Thank you, Martin. Don't you just love this. And that is also part of the joy we have on Shutterchance. Traveling the world with our friends and see what kind of adventures they have. Big or small, does not matter.
Astrid.
You are very brave. I went atop the highest mountain in Australia, Mount Koziosco, but did not accompany my friends to the very top via cable car. I am a Capricorn.
Picturit: Thank you, Mary. I think Capricorn goes all the way, are hard workers (all positive) and maybe now we have to add.... like to be with two feet on the ground at almost sea-level.... I hope you don't get vertigo if you wear your wintersocks around the house wink... (just joking, Mary). I like heights but I am not a dare-devil...
Astrid.
As I said the other day you are much braver then me Astrid, but what good pictures you got.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. We were so lucky with the weather and that we had a few days to pick the right one to go...
Astrid.
WOW! AMazing trip up. But I feel a bit dizzy ;-) Friendship
Picturit: This was so much fun, Ruthie.... just hold on to something and you will be okay.
Astrid.

deze foto's zijn meer geruststellend Astrid

enig mooie zichten en knap in beeld gebracht

groeten
Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Dit was een leuke rit omhoog/omlaag en het uitzicht was de moeite waard. Absoluut.
Nog een fijne dag.
Astrid.
I won't show this to Ange.....she is better off sticking to being a centurion
Picturit: tongue.... I so loved the picture of Ange as a centurion.... she would not harm a soul. So no "uphill" rides for her then. It was so much fun and the view just amazing.
Astrid.
La ensation est vraiment super agreable !!!
Merci pour ces photos
Picturit: This was so much fun, Claudine. The view was magnificent and the ride so smooth.
Astrid.
A nice ride!
Picturit: Indeed it was, Tom. That was so much fun and so much to see.
Astrid.
