(Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved) Our 49th state and the one that is still called " The Last Frontier " has some very rugged and mountainous terrain. With very few roads, many people who live there year round own small airplanes and fly from one city to another, or from one lake to another. Even travel by train is limited because of the terrain and winter snowfall. This older train engine on display in the small town of Skagway was equipped with a huge rotating device to scrape, break up and remove snow piles from the tracks going up through the infamous White Pass. This is where I saw my very first ... Alaska Snow Train.
I created this image from my original photograph taken on location by adding digital enhancements, textures and painterly-style effects. These effects and image details will become more visible by clicking inside the green magnifier square as the cursor is placed over the image.
PLEASE NOTE: Our professional printing facilities have a feature for customers who desire artwork prepared for them to be in standard sizes such as 8 x 10, 11 x 14, 16 x 20, 24 x 30, 36 x 24 and so on. When you select your image to purchase, from the SIZE tab choose a VERTICAL, HORIZONTAL or SQUARE format. Notice that some portions of my original image may not be included in these cropped formats. The NATURAL format is the way I composed the image in camera or during final processing. Sometimes this would create an image size which required the use of non-standard mats or frames. So go ahead and see for yourself, by viewing my images in these new formats to decide which one may (or may not) best suit your needs or style of wall art. Of course, you may always choose the NATURAL format and purchase my art as it was originally composed and created.
Many thanks and best wishes!
