Impressive shots of LA, nice to see so much construction going on around the downtown area.

Also, I love the afternoon ambience your photos highlight. Really sets the mood.

Some shots from last month flying into Burbank Airport from Phoenix:


The Burbank media district, with Warner Brothers Studios at the bottom of the pic



aerial view of Downtown Glendale



aerial view of Burbank Airport, we will swing all the way around to land from the other direction



Aerial view of Mt. Wilson, the famous Mt. Wilson Observatory is on the right and on the left are the dozens of communication towers for TV, Radio and other uses. Mt. Wilson had the largest telescope in the world in its time (100inches) and is also famous for where the speed of light was first measured.

Love this photo of The Century https://jamescolincampbell.com/1-w-century-dr/ - the Northside of the tower will be losing some of their view when the new century plaza residences are done. Oh Well!

Los Angeles depends on imported water for its residents and industry. The first canal was built by William Mulholland for the city of Los Angeles in 1913, later the State of California built a larger system to deliver water statewide. These are aerials from the Mojave Desert, with the aqueduct bringing water across the desert to LA. The last photo is where the water cascades down the last hill entering the San Fernando Valley at last.




Water pumped over the Tehachapi Mountains and through the Antelope Valley north of LA


Where the aqueduct ends, in the northern San Fernando Valley

Amazing thread, which shows clearly the size of the metropolitan area, and the concentration of activities in some points
