Description

The Phoenix Park Area...a client favorite...was a really fun one to do.  This one actually took quite a bit of work and I took some dangerous measures to accomplish.  This required me to cross the Chippewa River to the far bank.  Then find the precise area the other photographer had been, but keep in mind, water levels change over time.  It just so happened that the photographer a hundred years ago was standing right about where the water began.  I literally had to scale down the hill, tree by tree, and once I got to the water's edge, had to climb a tree out over the water, and lean in to make it straight.  All with the Then photograph folded up for reference in my hoody pocket.  Definitely worth it.
