HORSESHOE BEND 3 © 2013Arizona
Photographic Story There is an amazing view of the Colorado River wrapping itself around Horseshoe Bend in Glen Canyon that I was eager to capture. This geological masterpiece is an example of what happens when water follows the path of least resistance. As I worked on getting the best angle, Niki was a nervous wreck. The problem was that in order to get the whole river at the bottom of the canyon in the photograph, I had to get to the edge. As I inched closer and closer to the edge of the cliff, Niki started yelling at me, saying, “No photograph is worth your life!” It wasn’t easy, but it sure was beautiful. 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.
