Photo Of The Day – Griffith Observatory And Downtown Los Angeles Just Before Sunset

Title: Griffith Observatory And Downtown Los Angeles Just Before Sunset

Location: Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California, USA, North America


Description: As mentioned in yesterday’s Photos Of The Day, my wife and I made it up to the Hollywood sign for a First Day Hike (unbeknownst to us, but it is a national thing to go on a hike on the first day of the year, which sounds awesome to me). On the way there we were treated with some tremendous views of LA, Santa Monica, a couple of blimps, some skywriting and more great views to Burbank and the North.

I love it when photos line up just right and that was the case with this shot of the Griffith Observatory (seen in other posts here, here and here). I am also experimenting with a piece of software by Kolor (the people who make the panorama software I use) called Neutralhazer, which tries to take out haze from photos. And what better place than LA to deal with haze! I will have a review on Digital Photography School in about a month or so on my findings.
