Wild sky on the eve of St. Valentine
February always seems to bring fantastic skies over Los Angeles. Just about every rising or setting of the sun has the potential for a remarkable display of color and light. I took this shot from the far north-east end of Pasadena, where the houses end at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, which climb 10,000 feet (over 3,000 meters) almost straight up. In the lower left-center of the shot, you can see downtown Los Angeles. In the lower right-center, the sun setting over the Verdugo and Santa Monica Mountains. I absolutely love Southern California.
