Photographic Story We were staying in Yosemite at six thousand feet and woke up one morning to a beautiful snowfall. We jumped up, anxious to get down to the valley to capture the snow, but when we got outside we found our car was buried in snow and we couldn’t leave until it was shoveled out! We waited our turn as the owner of the hotel and his employees slowly dug out the cars in the parking lot. By the time we had reached Inspiration Point the snow had begun melting rapidly, however I was able to capture this photograph before it was all gone. 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.
