Myakka River State Park, Sarasota
Photographic Story Myakka River State Park, Florida – I’ve enjoyed getting to know Myakka State Park. It is one of the oldest and largest State Parks in Florida and has an amazing variety in it’s environment. When I took this image it was summer and the park was closed due to flooding, but the rangers were kind enough to drive me through the park on the flooded roads so I could photograph. It was a fun day having the park all to myself, and because there was water everywhere there were a lot of photographic opportunities. 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.
