A Small Look at the Albany Region

There is an artist in Albany by the name of Darryl Ratcliffe who turns old trees and stumps and bits of tree into magnifcient carvings using only a chainsaw. You can drive along a path on his property where every few metres on either side are unbelievable chainsaw carvings. Near the end is a box where you can choose to toss in some money to show your appreciation of this man's amazing talent. Here I only show a small selection. (Just grab and slide the pics or leave as auto slideshow. Don't miss the full-screen button at top right of pics.)
