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.
