Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Florida

Photographic Story The PBS program Wild Heart of Florida included a portion on the Ghost Orchid. That year there were only three Ghost Orchids in bloom and this one was the easiest to reach. It was twelve feet up in a tree! In order to photograph it, as well as film me photographing it, we had to take two twelve-foot ladders into the swamp: one for the videographer and one for me. I also took a thirteen-food tripod in and set it up. The image is called Ghost Orchid High because it was so high up in the tree. 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.
