Climbing Prodigy

While taking photos of climbers at Smith Rock State Park, I spotted this young girl on a cliff face about 70 feet away from the ledge I was perched on. I could hear her parents down below yelling something in French up to her. I yelled across to them, "Is it OK if I take some pictures of your daughter?". Fortunately, they spoke English and yelled back "absolutely!". This image was captured as she tried to navigate a particularly difficult area. You can see the intense concentration on her face. I snapped the shot in manual mode at F/10, 1/20 of a second, 350mm zoom.

Location: Smith Rock State Park - Terrebonne, Oregon
