GLACIER POINT HALF DOME © 2009
Yosemite National Park, CA
Photographic Story I have always wanted to photograph Half Dome from Glacier Point, but it seemed every time I was at Yosemite the light wasn’t right. This time I just about didn’t get a photograph either. When we arrived, the railing at the overlook was crowded with people. The light was perfect, but I couldn’t squeeze my camera and tripod into the crowd. While I was waiting for an opening, the fog rolled in and the people rolled out! The view was obliterated with fog and only a few photographers stayed but then they too left. Only Niki and I remained. We waited in the beautiful white silence of the fog. I was rewarded at last. I got a couple of shots until the fog rolled in, completely covering Half Dome and the valley once again with beautiful white silence. 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 fiber-base 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. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
