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.
