What an under-appreciated piece of glass the "kit" DA 18-55 lens is! I must confess to a small amount of regret in selling mine when I bought the DA*16-50, especially when I see shots like these, with such good colour and other IQ aspects.

Of course, the photographer had a hand in it, too!

Thanks for sharing.

More to come, once I manage to load to flicker, as internet is as slow as a wet week end.

Thanks Bob and EM, the last two photo's the track to get in was tight/rough, we had to leave the trailer in a parking area to be able to get in.If you didn't know the track you were lost, luckly my mate knew the tracks.
