Rain Veil – Black and White Limited Fine Art Photography Print (edition 100)
Rain Veil is one of my many fond memories I have of the Yukon.
I lived in Canada’s Yukon for 22 years. The magic and over most parts of the Territory unspoiled wilderness inspired me to become a full-time nature photographer in 1995. A move I never regretted. For many years I paddled most of its wild rivers in a canoe or hiked in the Kluane Mountains in front of my log home. It is hard to express my feelings for this unusual place in words.
Yukon, formerly Yukon Territory, territory of northwestern Canada, an area of rugged mountains and high plateaus. It is bounded by the Northwest Territories to the east, by British Columbia to the south, and by the U.S. state of Alaska to the west, and it extends northward above the Arctic Circle to the Beaufort Sea. The capital is Whitehorse.
The mineral wealth of Yukon has been known since the famous Klondike gold rush of the later 1890s, but the combination of an Arctic climate and remoteness from markets has limited the economic exploitation of such resources and the development of modern settlement. Instead, the territory remains among the few frontiers on the North American continent, a sparsely populated and largely unspoiled wilderness.
I took this image in fall while on a photography shoot in the northern Yukon. The previous night had been cold and in the morning the boreal forest was covered in thick fog. Until today Rain Veil still is one my favorite pieces of photography art.
The Rain Veil fine art black and white photography print has a limited edition of only 100. Most other fine art photographers have a much higher limited edition number. The lower the number the higher is the value of the print.
