ANCIENT ONE © 1994Western Everglades
When I see the twisted rugged shape of the dwarf cypress, I always wonder what they have seen in the hundreds of years they have been on this planet. They are fun to photograph because they always offer an abundance of interesting shapes and textures. Ancient One was taken with a Deardorff 8×10 camera on T-Max 100 film. This photograph is hand-printed in Clyde’s darkroom on fiber-based paper, selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. The photograph is a limited edition and signed by Clyde. Camera settings f/45 | 120mm Nikkor SW lens | orange filter | 1 second Disclaimer – Cropping, contrast, and image density may vary.
