This shot was taken of my 2 year old daughter while she was climbing up her plastic three step slide. I had just recieved a Nikon Speedlight SB-600 as a birthday gift from my father. I was experimenting...and turned the flash backwords and 60 degrees up...pointing at the wall/ceiling behind me. Woolah...what a beautiful capture of my little girl. #2822617
