This old relic is part of an ongoing project that I’ve been working on for over 3 years. The caboose gets moved around pretty regularly, but it always stays on the same piece of track. I’ve made many images of it in all seasons and in a variety of weather conditions. I always look for it when the seasons change or when I see dramatic weather. When I saw these clouds brewing in the distance I immediately thought of the caboose and went directly to it to try to add another image to my collection. Occasionally it gets hidden between other active railcars or even an entire train, so I was happy to find it sitting out on it’s own today.

While focusing on the beauty of the prairies, including the sweeping horizons, the vegetation, and the birds and animals, the Eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains are also a favorite place to wander and photograph.
