Above Los Angeles

Los Angeles never looked so good.  From our friend Nico in Montreal "I thought you'd appreciate two snaps of the mountains 'above sunset' I took last week - taking off from LAX, heading west to Kailua Kona."

When you fly out of Los Angeles you climb out over Marina Del Rey, and the Santa Monica Mountains and Malibu are on your right.  These shots are awesome, in the true sense of that word.
