GLACIER NATIONAL PARK 9 © 2013Montana
Photographic Story A few years before Glacier became a national park, the naturalist John Muir visited and declared the landscape “the best care-killing scenery on the continent.” After getting up at three in the morning and driving to the area I wanted to photograph, we noticed that the sun wasn’t where we thought it would be. As the sun crested over the horizon, I realized that it was coming up much further north than I had expected. Niki and I waited for the sun to continue its trip to a higher point in the sky; it felt good to sit quietly and take in that care-killing view. Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with an analog large format camera. After Clyde develops the negative, the film is scanned and edited in a computer program mimicking his darkroom techniques. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 ink and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. This is a limited edition series and each photograph is numbered.
