Train to Kandy

This was taken while on a train journey from Colombo to Kandy in Sri Lanka. It is known as one of the most beautiful train rides in the world, commonly taken by couples going on vacation. This couple looked so peaceful sitting together, whereas the couple reflected in the window on the right side of the frame are hanging out off the car being young and adventurous. It was a beautiful dichotomy made possible by the fantastic nature of the train ride.
