ROCK ISLAND PRAIRIE
Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida
Photographic Story I had spent the day photographing in the Big Cypress National Preserve. As the day grew late, I started packing my gear into the four-wheel drive truck. I glanced up at the sky and saw a wonderful pattern of clouds filling the sky. I realized something exciting was going to happen. Quickly, I began searching for a composition so I could set up my camera. I managed to set the camera up just in time to capture this image. 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.
