LAKE CRESCENT © 1996
Olympic National Park, WA
Photographic Story We were returning from the Hoh Rain Forest when we saw this scene. I knew it wouldn’t last long, so we quickly stopped the car, jumped out and set up the camera as fast as we could. This was a time when having Niki to help made all the difference. We had been photographing in the Olympic National Park for two weeks and were really in rhythm with each other. That rhythm paid off when we went to set up the camera for this shot. It was the quickest we have ever set up a camera together! As soon as I took the picture the silver streak on the lake disappeared. 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.
