Piece description from the artist
The Eiffel Tower at Night| Paris | Spring 2018
Completed in March of 1889 as the entrance to the 1900 Exposition Universelle, the 100th Anniversary of France's independence
1,063 feet tall – designed by Maurice Koechlin & Émile Nouguier of Gustave Eiffel's Compagnie des Etablissements Eiffel, and architect Stephen Sauvestre.
The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world, the tallest building in Paris, and for many years the tallest man-made structure in the world.
Ashland grew up in Southeast Virginia surrounded by lush rural landscapes, great protected swamp lands, national & state parks, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, the breathtaking Skyline Drive & Blue Ridge Mountains, and the inlets & oceans of Virginia & North Carolina.
It was this constant variation in natural beauty that first drew his eye to the camera; that, and the constant joy of capturing life's candid moments on film. Although no particular subject is banned from the lens of Ashland's camera, it is landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, and nature that truly captures his heart.
"There's always more to see, more to learn, more to be wowed about-I just hope you enjoy what I see in the world."
A constant staple on the likes of Instagram, Flickr, and Facebook, Ashland currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, and looks forward to many more years of development, collaboration, creativity, world travel, and art.
