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 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. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
