KEY LARGO BUTTONWOOD © 2001Florida Keys
Buttonwood trees are a type of mangrove but have wonderfully rugged bark that adds wonderful texture and shape to a photograph. I found this Buttonwood near Key Largo in the Florida Keys. Key Largo Buttonwood was taken with a Deardorff 5×7 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 | 72mm Schneider lens | orange filter | 1 second Disclaimer – Cropping, contrast, and image density may vary.
