If a tree falls in the forest, does anyone........

Thankfully, this one has a happy ending, but, for a moment there, I thought I was about to capture something pretty,....,well,....scary.  I came across some county workers going to work on a tree.  A big tree. The picture only shows 2 guys but there was actually 5 guys there watching the one guy do the cutting.  There's a joke in there somewhere.  4 of the guys evidently got cold and went and sat in their trucks.  The first pic shows one of them(probably the supervisor) watching the lumberjack.  Notice where he is standing.  I didn't think he could be so foolish and as it turned out he wasn't.  By time the tree hit the ground, they were both safely on the other side. The little movie below was a whole bunch of shots put together showing the power of a falling tree.  And even though you don't hear it in the video, you do hear a LOUD boom in real life..

  1. I wanted to tell you Mark how much I liked this whole production. In just a few seconds with a picture, video, and a few words, you captured the whole scene. Cool.
