MYAKKA CANOPY WALK © 2001
Myakka River State Park, Sarasota
Photographic Story The Canopy Trail in Myakka leads to the wonderful experience of walking through the treetops. The park, through the financial support of the community and the help of Meg Lowman, 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. 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.
