Are those photos that show the mountains prominent behind the LA skyline how it would normally look or is that an optical illusion accomplished with zoom?

That is how it would normally look. I think Los Angeles is a very beautiful city when you can see it after a winter storm has cleared out all the smog and left the hillsides green instead brown. Tourists rarely see it that way, which is why you don't hear much about it, but there is a reason the movie industry was founded there. When I first moved to Los Angeles, I think I was there for six months before I saw what the city really looked like. I was shocked. It has mountains all around it and a mountain range going straight through it.

Tropical weather to the South, Mediterranean to the Northwest, wineries nearby, Ski resorts to the North, Deserts to the east and a ton of national parks within a few hours. California is very climatically unique.

From the Rickenbacker Causeway

This is the view you see coming back from the Sony Ericsson Open (Tennis tournament), except it looks huge in person.
