Artist's Description

Of the many things that captivated me about the historic frontier town of Dawson City in the Yukon was the brightly coloured facades of each timber building and home.

The general store of the Klondike gold rush town looks like something out of the Wild West, but like most other structures on the main street, it has been immaculately maintained. The outwards-opening double doorway, seen in the centre of this frame, is obviously not used any longer.

But it’s a literal and metaphorical doorway to a unique chapter in the region’s heritage.

This photograph was taken with a Pentax K100D at F9.5, 1/500s, ISO 200 and focal length 125mm. It is not cropped or post-edited in any way.
