This is a view of Downtown Los Angeles from up at the Griffith Observatory. It was one of the rare clear nights. We've actually been having a lot of them lately. Very nice weather this summer. If you plan on making a trip up to the Griffith Observatory at night, get ready for a crowd. It can be very busy when the weather is nice. It's best to get your photos right before they close at around Ten. Most people will have left by then. It's how I was able to get this photos: http://alikgriffin.com/blog/aug/09/griffith-observatory-los-angeles If you go earlier make sure to check out all the awesome exhibits inside.
Nothing fancy about this photo. Just taken with the 5Dmkii and the 24-70mm f2.8L lens on a perfect night. A little bit of contrast and color saturation in Lightroom 4.
