Train Cemetery

By philipr  
This is an old train in the "train cemetery" next to the salt flats of Uyuni in Southwest Bolivia. It used to be a ral transport hub for Chile and Argentina but now roads have taken over and there are lots of rusting old trains left. It have become a tourist attraction now so its unlikely it will get cleaned up.

Nice description of an equally nice image. Like the vanishing point on the left of image.

A very sad sight, but great image.

Looks like a glimpse into a post apocalyptic world. The ultra wide angle works well with this shot. Click

Excellent composition to this. The colours are great. Interesting story as well.

Wonderfully composed and taken - though it's sad, you can still feel the power of the engine (almost as if it's raring to go)in a ghostly way. Bruce
