If that sky was crazier, going to 12mm or so would have been crazy good.

Going to 12mm would have backed me up and shown a lot of unattractive foreground???

By and large, I think that UWA zooms are indoor lenses, or tight urban landscape lenses. Big wide visual fields, it's hard to get the width of an ultra wide to be harmonic with its height, or vice versa. Not that I don't have outdoor landscape shots that I think work, but when you've got that kind of field of view, you need to be in a place where everything you can see makes you breathless.

You sure threw me for a loop with that one. You say you are an UWA addict but you don't use it for landscapes / nature type shots? Only inside and in cities?
