I knew Rapido's The Canadian was a work of art--now it's a work in art. Photographer Jeff Friesen took the set on a cross-Canada tour, taking pictures of it in various provinces and locations.

Not only is this The Canadian like you've never seen it before, but also in places you've never seen it before. (e.g. a lake)

That is quite beautiful. I don't know if that moisture ruined then train or not, but it sure made form some great photography!
