CASCADE FALLS 3 © 2006
Yosemite National Park, CA
Photographic Story I had spent three weeks during spring photographing Yosemite Valley and decided to check out the upper country while I was there. As I left the valley and was driving up the side of the mountain we came across this wonderful waterfall that very few people notice. It tumbles and crashes from way up in the mountain, runs under the road, and on down into the valley. It had the potential of being a great photograph, but the light wasn’t right. I returned several times until, one day, the fog drifted in creating perfect light for a photograph. 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.
