Confluence of Los Angeles River & Arroyo Seco



What is this? The big clutter that is northeast Los Angeles and beyond, as seen from Elysian Park on the north end of downtown L.A. Immediately below is the Los Angeles River and the confluence with one its main tributaries, the Arroyo Seco. 

The 110 freeway crosses the river on the green bridges and then passes beneath the 5 freeway. Mt. Washington rises beyond. And the purplish mountains in the distance? Those are the mighty San Gabriel Mountains that loom over Southern California -- rising to 10,069 feet atop Mt. Baldy, meaning there's a remarkable 10,069-foot range in elevations in L.A. County.


Is it a good photo? Not sure. There's a lot going on -- perhaps too much, meaning the eye really doesn't have any place to settle. On the other hand, it's an interesting vantage point. Might be better a little earlier in the afternoon when sunlight is on the entire scene. 

The photo was taken with my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 35mm 1.8 lens.
