This train caboose is the final remaining car at the old train station in Clarenville, Newfoundland Canada. Once the main method of land transportation in Newfoundland. However, plagued by a smaller track size than the mainland, it was replaced by the trans-Canada Highway. Now this car and the neighboring building stands as a museum and stop along the new trans-Canada trail which see's more human powered traffic via sneakers, hiking boots, and snowmobiles in the winter.

I tried to frame a shot that would add signifigance to the legacy this train represents, although I'm not certain I could accomplish it with one picture.

Comments welcome.

nice job, its very creative and well composed. I think if you had waited until later in the day for the sun to start to set, it would be better because you could capture more shadow. other than that this is a great image.
