A second shot of Multnomah Falls looking down from the top.  I like this one mostly because it was an excuse to use the WiFi remote shot feature of the a6000 in combination with an Android phone in order to hold it out over the falls on the end of a tripod, frame the shot using the phone screen and then take the picture with the phone.  You can see the bridge a few hundred feet below in the upper right of the picture.
