Hillsborough River Rapids
Hillsborough River State Park, Thonotosassa, Northeast of Tampa, FL  – I was told that the Hillsborough River, near Tampa, has rapids. Florida has no mountains, so I couldn’t imagine rapids in Florida. I was very curious about how they would look. As I hiked toward the rapids, the sound of the water rushing over the rocks took my mind back to the rivers of California, which I had photographed when I was young. However, the Hillsborough River is not like any river in California. It had been a dry spring, so the rocks stood out of the river, creating wonderful photographic opportunities. I chose a long exposure for this photograph so that the movement of the water would ‘soften’ and contrast with the hard forms of the rocks. 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. Disclaimer – Cropping, contrast, and image density may vary. To learn more about the darkroom printing process, click here.
