GLACIER CREEK © 1997
Rocky Mountain National Park, CO
Photographic Story While Artist in Residence at the Park, we decided to take a hike up to Alberta Falls. Glacier Creek runs along the trail on the way up to Alberta Falls in the Rocky Mountain National Park. As I set up my camera to take this picture of the creek and waited for the right light, I was amazed at the vast number of people who blindly hiked right past this lovely scene without stopping. It became clear to me that the hikers were so mentally preoccupied with reaching their destination of Alberta Falls that they weren’t aware of the beauty they were missing along the way. 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.
