During the summer time we were in Vernon for a weekend and I had seen an old barn with some character that I wanted to photograph at sunset. The nearby hills cast the barn into shadow so I kept driving around looking for an interesting subject. The light is everything. If I had taken this picture at 2 in the afternoon I would have gotten washed out greens, a flat boring railroad track and some very grey rocks. The light cutting down through all of that horizon in the evening makes the green and yellow come together in a fiery gold, the low slanting light hits the tracks and produces a reflection that pulls your eye into the photo. The tracks also put the rocks into a light shadow allowing them to display their purple-blue colour. When photographers go out at sunset or sunrise good things happen.
