Virginia City, Nevada was a silver mining town in the late 1860s, after the Civil War. It lasted longer than many mining towns and even had ore taken from its mines in the 1900s. This photograph shows a head frame which was like a large pulley-like device needed to pull the ore wagons from the mine to the surface of the land. The intense blue sky and the fading mountains in the background outline the terrain and the head frames' shape.
To give my photographs a quality akin to a fine oil painting, I print them on medium-weight artist quality mat canvas and ship them ready for stretching and framing. The inks used to make the print are light fast and permanent and should last for well over 100 years. I spray a protective coating over the canvas to ensure that the image will have a long lifetime. This photograph is available in other sizes and on other media to suit your individual tastes and needs by contacting me with the email above.
