Photographic Story I was enthralled with the tundra of the Rocky Mountains. I wanted to photograph an area that gave the feeling of the tundra, as well as the altitude in which it lives. I felt that this scene, with the distant forest below and the mountains arching up in the background, would do just that. This photograph was taken, breathlessly, at 12,000 ft. 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.
