Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills

And the big announcement is…

not here… but it will be here tomorrow! πŸ™‚ I’m so excited! πŸ™‚ Christmas in July!

Daily Photo – Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills

“The Hollywood Hills” is one of those areas I had always heard about but never visited. I always wanted to get a photo of them, but, how, exactly, does one do that?

Well once I finally found the area and started exploring it, I decided to try to find a unique shot. It snuck up on me one afternoon while jogging through some trails along the top. I saw this scene and decided to return later, when the time was right.

  • Interesting photo – lots of depth – upclose houses with the city in the background and that brown LA sky. But I was looking for the big announcement! Have to wait some another day.

  • T.J. Powell

    Great shot. Love the detail from the close up area to the distant area. Well done.

  • Catherine Martin

    Love the layers of light.

  • Very cool Trey! It’s a unique view of LA that hasn’t been shot as much these days (or at least from what I’ve seen). πŸ˜‰

    I notice this is tagged with “D800” but the info states D3X, is that a test to see who is paying attention to detail? Is there a prize? do I win?

  • Trey Ratcliff, the one that usually shares everything with us, is currently keeping a secret. I don’t like this side of Trey.

  • oooops!! hehe let me fix that – yes you do win a prize! πŸ™‚

  • The compression in this image is what really stands out to me. What focal length did you use, Trey? I looked but didn’t find that information anywhere …

  • Tate Mcgee

    Personally, I love everything about this take. A really great shot!

  • Wow! Talk about layers! I am in love with these tones too! This is an immaculate photo Trey! Wow. πŸ™‚
