DRY TORTUGAS 1 © 2016
Photographic Story Thirty years ago we traveled to the Dry Tortugas on our sailboat. At that time, the Dry Tortugas was a National Monument; today it is a National Park. This summer we finally made our way back to the Fort, thanks to Superintendent of the Everglades National Park, Pedro Ramos (who also oversees Dry Tortugas, Key Biscayne and Big Cypress). He invited us to spend a few days photographing at the Dry Tortugas and we gladly said, “YES!” When we landed at Fort Jefferson memories of the last time we were there flooded my mind. It seemed only yesterday that our children were small and as excited as we were for the adventure of exploring the Dry Tortugas. This time around our trip was again filled with clear turquoise waters, fantastic views and quiet peace. It’s a wonderful place to experience filled with history and beauty – make sure a trip to the Dry Tortugas is on your bucket list! Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with a high-quality digital camera. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 i and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. Clyde signs and numbers the photograph.
