Artist's Description

I’m feeling a bit odd since so many great archways have been included in Red Bubble recently and the ones I have, like this one, are more historical than beautiful. But they are part of the local flavour and much of that flavour comes directly from the mass immigration searching for gold in 1849. So if you’re looking for sheer beauty, check out LindaR’s recent submission (You can reach it directly as one of my recent favourites.) and be completely amazed. If you want some of the rugged ‘wild, wild west’, you can’t get any closer than gold mines and the graves of those who came to mine them. :-)

This archway leads to the area that I’m calling the ’stable’s patio’ (where the three doors are located). It was fun to shoot it because of the numerous ‘depth of field’ opportunities available.

The mine is the Empire Mines and was one of the richest and most safe gold mines in California. It’s located right off Highway 49 in the Grass Valley area, the Highway 20 exit.
