Face your fear

My family and I went to play here earlier today. There were to slopes: One ordinary, and the other with lots of bumps and jumps. When we arrived my oldest son set off without thinking that all the bumps and jump would make him airborne. The surprise alone made him play around in the other slope for another hour. But after awhile I guess curiosity got the best of him, and he returned to the bumpy ride. And when he did, I guess he discovered that the bumpy rides sometimes can be enjoyable too.

 

A note for pixel peepers: If you view the largest version of this photo, you'll see why the Sony NEX 16mm lens is hated/ridiculed by so many. Although the lens provides the possibility for great perspective and distortion, at f/2.8 it almost have no resolution/sharpness whatsoever. Photos comes out grainy as if they were taken on high ISO at night. In addition contrast is not fantastic either, so be prepared to fiddle around in PP a little if using f/2.8. (This photo is shot at f/2.8 and ISO 500).
