Barrier Island, Gulf Coast

Cayo Costa Island 1
Photographic Story Cayo Costa Island State Park, a barrier island near Cape Coral, Florida – Cayo Costa Island is one of my favorite places in Florida. During late June the angle of the sun is from its most northern direction, which gives the northern tip of the island great light. In the late afternoon I set up my camera and waited for good clouds and good light. It seems like, during the summer, the clouds rarely form over the barrier islands along the coast, instead they build up inland. Every day for a week I waited for clouds to form over the island. Toward the end of the week I finally got a small storm forming over Charlotte Harbor. The clouds were very dark at the point where the white sand and sky met, which gave a wonderful focal point to the picture. Behind me there wasn’t a cloud to be seen, so the light was hitting the beach pure and strong. 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’x8′ 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.
