Pinkfloyd, those pictures are gorgeous! Second one is lovely with Century City; makes LA seem "denser". XLucky4lifeX, I love the first photo. I'm a big fan of "dense" looking cities.

I'm always wondering what the Downtown LA skyline would've looked like if the buildings at Century City weren't so far away but located downtown. Does anyone know where I can see a photo of LA's downtown skyline with Century City's skyline photoshopped into it? I remember many pages back in this thread, someone inserted buildings into the skyline to give an idea what it would look like...

I got to visit LA again at the start of this month during a tour of southern California. As promised, here are some photos from my trip (all taken by me).

1. This one's for Milquetoast, for all his contributions to this thread:

2. Dawn over downtown, taken from W Pico Blvd, just south of Beverly Hills:

3. Similar to the last one, zoomed more on downtown:

4. Dawn over the mountains:

5. Another one taken at dawn - I like the light in this one, the palm trees, and downtown visible in the distance:

More to follow, when I get around to processing/uploading them. Enjoy

Thanks, Tones! I've got to get your camera
Also, I see you have no problem
getting up in the morning!
Last one is slightly better than the rest
but all are great- where you at?

I'm from England - what usually happens is that I take off from the UK around 10am, then land in LA at what works out to be about 9pm UK time, and by the time I clear immigration, pick up my rental car, check in to my hotel and go out for a meal, it's about 2am UK time. So my body clock is haywire and I spring awake before dawn the next morning in LA. I know I won't get any sleep, so I get out with my camera.

It's a wonderful time to be around the city. It's quiet, the air is cool, the city is just coming to life, and the light of dawn looks great.

Most of the above photos were taken around the junction of S Beverly Drive and W Pico Blvd - I took some photos on the street, then managed to sneak onto a rooftop to take the final one in the series above. Another advantage of being up at dawn: less people around to notice mildly illicit access to otherwise restricted areas

Couple more for you:

1. Sherman Oaks - Corner of Ventura & Van Nuys:

2. The LA River from a bridge in Reseda. Man, I LOVE the LA River! I saw a group of nefarious rapscallions running into a storm drain just after I took this photo - I caught the dastardly ruffians on video, actually.
