Tuesday, April 21, 2009 Sky High

A brutal April day, dry and one hundred in the shade, but a good day to drive up to Griffith Park Observatory above it all.  It was just as hot up there, but you were above the thick layer of smog, and the world seemed better that close to the sky.  And the roof decks were open this time. The observatory opened in 1935, and you could pretend you were in another time.

If you wish to use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me. And should you choose to download any of these images and use them invoking the "fair use" provisions of the Copyright Act of 1976, please provide credit, and, on the web, a link back to this site.

Technical Note:

These photographs were taken with a Nikon D200 the lenses used were AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto.  The high-resolution photography here was modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
