MERCED RIVER © 2011
Yosemite National Park, CA
Photographic Story As our day came to an end in Yosemite Valley, we came across this scene of the late afternoon sun radiating on the cliffs across from the Merced River. It was filled with beautiful soft light. I turned into a parking lot as quickly as I could, then walked back to the scene. What a wonderful way to end the day in Yosemite. 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.
