    Thanks Amin. It was a last minute idea to do it before the kids go back to school. Although not a particularly high mountain (1520ft) by most standards, the rocky and steep terrain was a challenge for my city slicker family. :)That last photo shows our genuine sense of accomplishment at the summit. :yahoo:

    Great shots! What a view of the river valley below!! The last time I was through there, it was in a raft during the mid 80s.
    Lovely location and a splendid time given the four big smiles.

    Beautiful shots!

    A question if you don't mind. I had been told that polarizers and ultra-wide lenses aren't a good combination. Doesn't seem like you had any problem here. I had been thinking about getting one for my 10-18 (for the A6000), but have been hesitant.

    You are right. They are a problem on UWA's because they can cause the sky to be different colors on different parts of the image. It wasn't that big a deal because the sun was actually behind us. I took it off for most of my really wide shots without clouds. And now that I look at this thread, even the people pics are at 16mm, so it may not have been on for most of these shots. In any case, look at the first pic. The left side was lighter than the right. Some PP and the clouds minimized the effect.

    Lol. I want to go back in the fall when that "green color" becomes multi-colored. Should be interesting.

    Thanks Tom, I initially loaded these to my private Flickr page because I had the family shots in there. I don't post the family shots to my main Flickr page. I'll correct it when I get a chance.

    Looks like a nice hike in some spectacular scenery. Can't help looking at that river and wonder what I could catch in there.
