SEVEN CABBAGE CUT
Chasahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, Florida
Photographic Story This photograph was taken north of Tampa, near Homossassa Springs, while I was on a pontoon boat. Earlier, when I had tried to jump off the boat to set up my camera in the water, I landed in about two feet of water and an eternity of muck! I realized I had to photograph the scene from the boat, so I put out four anchors to hold the boat steady. But that didn’t stop the boat from moving. I had to take several photographs of this scene to achieve this one sharp 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.
