PINE ISLAND SOUND © 1999
Photographic Story J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge – It had been a very hectic week, and we needed a break. We drove out to Ding Darling and spent a quiet afternoon up in their overlook tower watching the clouds roll across Pine Island Sound. The clouds in Florida are a wonder to watch. I love to photograph them as they create ever changing shapes. 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.
