L.A. From the Getty Museum
The L.A. Skyline from above the city at the Getty Museum. http://www.getty.edu/museum/
Its an amazing Museum with some outstanding views of the city. We were there in January with some local friends. It was a great sunny day, perfect for capturing the nice smoggy layer over the city. Its actually quite pretty despite being really bad for the environment...
The garden you see is really nice to wander around and relax or sit down in the shade and appreciate the view. There is a neat little stream that wends its way down a path to the big water feature maze thing you can see above.
This is one of the restaurants at the Museum (the cheaper one). Our friends were not all that impressed by the prices, but being tourists we thought they were reasonable. Moral of the story... take a picnic yourself and enjoy the landscaped garden.
As you enter the main level this water feature greets you, set amongst a refreshing surround of architecture and art.
