This shot was an attempt to capture our daughter jumping off the top of a sand dune, and in that respect it's not entirely successful; i.e. it doesn't give any indication of the height of her leap. A better vantage point would have been immediately under her as she jumped but then I would have been showered with sand, and given the choice of a perfect shot (and a camera full of sand) or a reasonably decent shot (and no sand in the camera), it wasn't all that difficult to decide ;-)
