GIBBON FALLS 4 © 2006
Yellowstone National Park, WY
Photographic Story A boardwalk was built to reach a platform that stuck out over the crevice looking toward Gibbon Falls. I’m not sure, but I think that boardwalk is as old as the park! Every time someone would walk on it the entire boardwalk and platform would shake. That made it difficult to take a sharp picture. Niki refused to stay on the platform; it was too nerve wracking for her. It took me a while, but eventually I got this picture when no one was on the boardwalk. 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 fiberbase 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.
