Georgia photographer Chamberlain Smith was hit hard on the sideline of the Bulldogs' game at Auburn on Saturday. Smith was taken off the field on a stretcher and transported to the hospital in a scary moment. Thankfully, she's since been released.

Smith shared on Twitter this morning the photo she took right before the collision on the sideline with Georgia running back Brian Herrien.

"For those of you asking if I got 'the' shot, here it is!! The last thing my camera & I saw before being tackled," she tweeted.

It's a great shot:

Herrien is a fan of it: “You’re the best, I knew it would be a good picture,” Herrien tweeted.

Smith shared an update on her status on Monday.

“I’m so glad to be walking away with nothing more than a concussion and some bruises,” she wrote in a Twitter post. “I will be home resting and recovering for the next several days, but look forward to being back on the sidelines soon!”
