"Centenary of the Niesen Funicular"
Issue date: 6th May 2010

The following picture was taken at the Niesen funicular station in Mülenen. It shows a large poster of the Swiss postage stamp "Centenary of the Niesen Funicular". The background looks like painted, but it seems to be a real photograph by applying a kind of solarizing filter to the original picture. That's why the two summits of the Schreckhorn and Lauteraarhorn are slightly merged with the sky. The stamp shows a view from a bridge, about 200 metres below the Niesen summit station, towards the Schreckhorn and Lauteraarhorn.
