Photographer's Note

Today we had some trees removed. I was so impressed with the knowledge the crew had about trees and the correct way to tie large branches off safely as they cut.

This is one of the tree guys, just back down on the ground after sawing off a big limb about 30' up in the air. He'd just slid down to the ground using his safety rope and was retrieving the rope from the tree when I shot this. You can see his safety harness around his waist and legs; the trees were slippery with rain today, and several times he was thankful for the protection offered him by his harness and ropes!

His is not a job for the faint of heart (or anyone afraid of heights).

Cropped, changed to greyscale and added border in Irfanview 3.91.
