a portion of the snow-capped san gabriel mountain range as seen from the santa fe dam recreational park.
inland from the pacific ocean, LA is bordered on most sides by rugged mountains which provide the only barrier to the continued expansion of its sprawling suburbs. the northern aspect is dominated by the san gabriel range. the mountain range forms a barrier between the greater LA area and the mojave desert.
this transverse range lies in and is surrounded by the angeles national forest with the san andreas fault as the northern border to the range. the highest peak in the range is mount san antonio commonly referred to as mount baldy.

Thats a nice one, very spread out and vast and well seen. the terrain looks nice and expansive and you have captured the shot from a good pov and with a good perspective. the colours are lovely and the tones very stark

Make me heartsick will you .. my wife is out your way 3 days a week at the moment .. staying with her sister right in this area ..
What I love about Mt. Baldy .. that you have captured wonderfully .. is how below is this ordinary daily life with this hazy, timeless peak watching over .. doing a little workshop to brighten the park.

Olá Beneditc, lovely and pleasant scenery well composed. San Gabriel is quite an impression on this landscape and this place seems nice, like a campsite, although it must be more like a pick-nik area. Interesting WS made out by John. Good shot!
Enjoy the weekend,

Hi Mehmet Ben,
