MORAINE VALLEY © 1997
Rocky Mountain National Park, CO
Photographic Story While I was “Artist in Residence” at Rocky Mountain National Park, I was given a cabin to stay in that looked out over the incredibly beautiful Moraine Valley. Early one morning I woke up to see the fog gently rolling in over the hills, with the rugged mountains visible above the fog in the background. It was so stunning I yelled to Niki to grab my clothes, while I ran outside into the cold, — wearing only my shorts – to set up my camera before the scene disappeared. Later, an old-timer told me he had seen that kind of fog only twice in his life. I felt blessed that I was awake when it happened. 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.
