GRAND CANYON MOONRISE 2 © 2011
Photographic Story Grand Canyon is such an awesome place. All day long the shadows crawl across the canyon creating multitudes of different images. A person could spend their life photographing nothing but the canyon and never shoot the same scene. Niki and I arrived at the canyon in January for a week of photography hoping to find at least a dusting of snow, alas there was no snow, but it was VERY cold. We hiked all over the south rim and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. On this particular day we were surprised by a full moon rising over the edge of the Canyon. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiberbase paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography.
