    Gregniqua screams her head off while riding the "ring of fire" as her family and friends watch. As a child, I hated any sort of thrill ride. I did not like the idea of losing control of my self and suffered from a fear of heights. I finally faced my fear as a teen, and fell in love with roller coasters. This is the first time I attempted to photograph someone on a roller coaster. The new fear I faced in this attempt was dropping the camera mid-ride.

    Nice caught in the moment, must have been fun/challenging for you to shoot, as long as the camera stays firmly in your hand!! Well done!
