Photographer's Note

The "Wood Chop" is a tradition at country fairs in Australia. Probably a dieing art with all the environmental trends these days, all the wood is apparently recycled into the paper industry.
Still, the raw power and the nostalgic charm of man and environment without the aid of machinery is appealing and entertaining to watch.
This guy was the local hero at the competition. He had a handicap of 2 minutes behind any other competitor to climb the tree, and lop off the top. Exciting.
BTW... he lost by 2 ... and he had an attitide too ;)

If interested. I have added a WS of the event from a different angle. Unedited ... so be kind ;)
