The Big Picture

I love our Clyde Butcher photographs. Clyde is often referred to as the Ansel Adams of the Everglades and his studio and galleries are both within a 2 hour driving distance from our house. This big photo of the Loxahatchee hangs in our living room. The top photo is taken up close (a photo of a photo) and looks like you could step right in to the glade. The bottom photo shows the framed piece on our wall. It is about 5 feet wide and 3.5 feet tall. Our whole house remodel last Fall was pretty much centered around this piece. We are fortunate to have 3 more Clyde Butcher photos that hang in our dining room in a gallery type setting. They are beautiful.

Clyde is an interesting character and holds an annual "muck about" in the Everglades behind his Ochopee gallery each Labor Day weekend. Looks like a group of us will be going this year. But not the mucking for him.
