MYAKKA CANOPY TRAIL © 2001
Photographic Story Myakka River State Park, Sarasota, Florida – The canopy trail in Myakka leads to the wonderful experience of walking through the treetops. The park, through the financial support of the community, built a suspension bridge through the tops of the trees, so that we can experience the environment of treetops. Wonderful! On the day I took this picture, the trail was flooded. It looked like a water wonderland, and remarkably different from the other times I had walked the trail. 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.
