Mulholland Drive sunset...

Sunset, Sunday evening, May 28, 2006 - location, Mulholland Drive, the two-lane road along the ridge of the mountains that separates the Los Angeles basin to the south and the San Fernando Valley to the north.

This is the view from a turn-out between the winding roads up out of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, to the west, Coldwater Canyon, and Laurel Canyon, to the east. This is looking north with Studio City immediately below, the western edge of Burbank in the middle, and Pacoima and the mountain communities in the far distance.

Consider this a technical exercise in light and shadow, and seeing how the Nikon D70 with the AF-5 Nikor 18-70 mm lens handles the various levels of intensity.
