This weeks theme was "Wood" and after a rather amusing and childish conversation on twitter with Eje, I decided to abandon my original idea ;-) So after much racking of my brain and looking around the house and at work I was struggling to find anything of interest to use in my image. Then a chat with Chris on twitter in which he mentioned logs and a chainsaw it struck me that I have a well known chainsaw artist in my local area. I first met him whilst at college training as a forester so I though this would be good to find some of his work. You can find out more about him Here
So here's the image, its carved using a chainsaw from a solid piece of wood, and stands at the entrance to a local nature park. This shot was the second attempt. the first was a failure as when I got back home and checked it on the big screen the focus was well off.
There are actually three of these guys guarding the gate to the park, but with this been the land of Tea, rolling hills and absolute tossers the others have been vandalised. Please have a gander at what the other guys produce for this theme, because I really struggled to find something interesting.
