Description
This photo was taken from Griffith Park observatory, showing a beautiful panorama of a large portion of Los Angeles. It shows an abundance of buildings, homes and small clusters of city civic centers, including the numerous skyscrapers in Downtown L.A.'s own civic center in the background. The view is so clear that the city is visible as far as the eye can see, which is not an easy thing, considering that Los Angeles is known for its thick, smoggy days.
