INSPIRATION POINT 26 © 2006
Yosemite National Park, CA
Photographic Story I spent three weeks in Yosemite National Park and passed by Inspiration Point every morning and evening on my way from and to my hotel. It seemed every day provided another spectacular scene while looking down into the valley! On this day, the mystical drama of the view from Inspiration Point was brought to life as the fog lifted off the valley floor revealing the beauty of Yosemite. I was fortunate to be there at that time to capture the feeling. 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.
