Felling a back-leaning tree with wedges.

Contrary to my prediction that the tree was going to fall the way it was leaning (downhill); my 92 yr old Grandfather schooled me on how to force it to fall uphill. Note for the armchair experts: While the hammer strikes may appear weak, notice how the soundwave concussion wobbles the camera from a distance. I know how to properly swing a maul. Given the short 16" handle and slope that I was standing against, I used momentum swings instead of direct blows.
