    I love that face of the dragon fly. And I'm not his mother!

    K1W1, I can feel the impact just looking at that shot.

    Sir Les and D70Fan, Thanks for feedback. I see what you mean.
    The first shot has more depth... yes. The second has the mountain as the main attraction as all the boats lead to it. And... unless you know about the mountain the ancient legend behind it, the idea would be lost.

    Rich, definitely a cool shot! Guess you could say it is striking. Or, has a lot of impact.

    Shot in continuous or single frame?

    Single frame. I had a few misses until I got it sussed but after half a dozen or so shots I could get the axe hitting the wood almost every time. (Shooting with both eyes open really helped as I could anticipate better. That photo is uncropped so that view was all that I could see in the viewfinder.

    As I don't take many shots with Nikons these days you will have to put up with another wood splitting photo. The Exif is available of Flickr for anybody who wants it.
    See what I mean about stuff flying into the air when the axe head hits the wood.

    Thanks DPR.
    Actually I'm happier with the splitting technique here than the photo. Hands together at the base of the handle for maximum leverage, axe handle horizontal with the top of the block at the point of the strike for maximum power. I reckon he is coming along fine. All we need to work on now is to look at the log first and think rather than simply swinging with brute force.
