[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot shows two lumberjacks climbing the poles in the traditional way. I cropped the shot to show the mechanisms they used to climb the poles. In the old days lumberjacks would climb trees and then start cutting at a particular height. It was part of a show up Grouse Mountain in Vancouver.
Grouse Mountain is one of the North Shore Mountains of the Pacific Ranges in the District Municipality of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. With a maximum elevation of over 1,200 m (4,100 feet) at its peak, the mountain is the site of an alpine ski area, Grouse Mountain Resort, which overlooks Greater Vancouver has four chairlifts servicing 33 runs. In the summer, Grouse Mountain Resort features lumberjack shows, the "Birds in Motion" birds of prey demonstration, a scenic chairlift ride, disc golf, mountain biking, zip lining, tandem paragliding, helicopter tours, and guided ecowalks. Year-round operations include a 100-seat mountaintop theatre and a wildlife refuge. The mountain operates two aerial tramways, know officially as the Skyride. The Blue Skyride is used mainly for freight transportation, while public access to the mountain top is provided by the Swiss-built Garaventa Red Skyride, which has a maximum capacity of 101 passengers (96 in summer). Summer access is also provided by the 2.9 kilometre Grouse Grind hiking trail, which is open for hiking from May to October (information courtesy of wikipedia).
I show the original shot in a workshop.

Hi David,
I have already written that once you have mastered the difficulties of the cellphone, you have become a master of that.
The quality of this catch is undeniable.
