the journaling reads:
I took this January 11, 2007 during the first real storm we had had in years. I just happened to look out my back door and saw the guy climbing the tree. I watched him cut all the limbs off up so far, then i watched him begin to cut the tree. Of course my camera was in hand and i got some fine photos, but this is the one i like the best. It catches the tree as it begins to topple. I tried to get a series as it went down, but alas, my camera decided it was tired and wouldn't take pics fast enough. This reminds me of my dad as he was in the logging business for years, and i have always had a soft spot for loggers. and cowboys, and ... but thats another story for another time.
