Photo Of The Day: Wood Chopping In Tasmania

“If you don’t already know, wood chopping is a big sport in Australia and is highly competitive,” says Flickr user BaboMike, who captured this shot at a Tasmanian wood chopping competition. The aim is simple: whoever gets through the log the quickest wins. This particular competition is located in Campbell Town, which boasts a population of “approx 900,” according to the town website. The wood chopping is part of the Campbell Town Show, the longest-running agricultural show in Australia, which features sheep and yard dog competitions in addition to something called the “Paddock to Plate Prime Lamb” competition.
