This is a throwback to a cloudy morning last April. Hendrick's Park contains one of the most beautiful flower gardens in Eugene. It's tempting to wait for a beautiful sunset but you can find the park nearly empty on those overcast mornings. I've been to Hendricks Park a number of times but it's always wonderful to come back and see the spring colors or the fall leaves.


Returning to a location multiple times also gives you the chance to really experiment with your edit. This trip gave me a chance to experiment with a heavier edit; more contrast, punch colors, deeper blacks. This is all culminating towards a fantasy-esque edit that I have been working on for some future projects.
