Another panorama, this one hand-held and shot (obviously) during the day. Composed of three 6 megapixel images, is shows the harbour area of Spiez, taken from the train station.

Poet Josef Viktor Widmann (1842–1911) wrote in his book Spaziergänge in den Alpen (Strolls in the Alps) that "the view from Spiez Station is one of the most beautiful in the world". I’d imagine that the foreground of this view was quite different at the turn of the twentieth century, but it’s still breathtaking.
