That big tree I wanted to cut, but my saw wouldn’t start, was still up there. I loaded up the chainsaw and headed that way.
I had to stop here and use the shovel on that drainage ditch I made a while back as it was leaking a bit.
Then I had to stop and cut this tree out of the way. It wasn’t there yesterday before the rain.
I got that log cut up and out of the way.
The big tree
I made it up to my cousin’s place to the big tree.
I cut that small log in front and then made a cut in the big log behind it. That should be enough for Skiddy to push it out of the way when I get a chance.
Then I rode up to this spot and trimmed some brush out of the right side here.
I stopped here at this spring for a drink of water. Yesterday’s rain sure brought the spring water volume up a lot. I need a name for this spring.
I stopped here and removed this dead log stuff off the road that had rolled down the hill.
It was a fairly nice day with a few clouds in the sky as I sat in this spot for a break.
Another tree to work on
My cousin told me about this tree across this road and the road above it so I headed for it to remove it.
First I went up to the upper road and cut the tree up hoping the other part of it would fall down on the bottom road more so it’d be easier to cut up.
It only fell down a little but enough to get to it and cut it up.
I sat down and took a break before throwing this stuff off the road. At my age, I work and sit and work and sit and I get the job done.
That was enough work and I got a lot of exercise and headed on home.
I sat around for the rest of the day with my chickens.
The guy is working on fixing up the last stuff on my blog so I should get it transferred soon. I think he is from India and doesn’t work on weekends or even some of the week days. But he did come in tonight and is getting stuff done.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
