    Hungry Valley is a several thousand acre off road vehicle (dirt bikes, quads, dune buggy, etc) desert riding area in southern CA... we took the kids and various sized motorcycles and spent the week here - it was soooo fun and I got to try out my new polarizing filter - I can't believe I didn't have one before now -

    The little white speck in the middle is our RV

    my four year old spent several hours every day on her quad - she does tricks like standing on the seat and laying down on the seat ... it's pretty cute

    when the kids weren't riding motorcycles or sleeping, they were in this tree

    Great photos!! 3, 5, 7 and 8 are my favourites.

    Aren't polarizing filters just the best!! I don't have a filter but I use my sunglasses instead. Unfortunately my lenses are tinted a little bit yellow as well - but it usually works well anyway. Try using the filter on water with shiny reflections - it's amazing how the reflections just magically disappear.
