Lumberjack World Championships
When: July 28-30.
Where: Hayward, WI.
What: Sawing, axe throwing, and log chopping competitions. Plus, chainsaws rigged with snow-mobile engines. These are not your everyday photos.
Tip: Tight spaces make tripods unwieldy, so stabilized zoom lenses are a must. Get down by the pole climbers for dramatic shots upward.
