Los Angeles after a winter storm

This is the view you get if you get here right after a storm and it’s quite the sight to see. Given the multiple storm systems there may be windows of opportunities to catch fresh snow on the Gabriel’s over the next few days but don’t wait too long as even a day after the smog/haze can come rolling back in cutting visibility of Baldy. This one was taken quite a bit before sunset but the clouds were drifting over the mountains and the sun was playing peek-a-boo casting some cool shadows on the city. I snapped this one as the back of the skyline sunk into the shadows. I always advise getting to location early when possible. In this case, these clouds pretty much disappeared by sunset which happens a lot or in the opposite case; clouds take over the sky creating a thick cover that doesn’t burn. Even if you don’t snap anything you can take the time to enjoy the view.
