This is Sarah being pushed ever so high on this huge swing. At this point, she's about 7 feet high.

I stood directly in front of her and held my camera as high as I could above my head. It was very tricky trying to calculate exactly where she would pause in mid-air the second before she started on her way back, and at the same time making sure I wasn't standing to close to her trajectory.

It was very fun, and I am thrilled with the result.
