Over the past weekend, I went to Griffith Park for the first time with USC photoclub to do a little exploring! We wondered around the observatory to take some pictures of the gorgeous architecture. A small group of us then decided to hike up this tall mountain near by to get some good sunset views. In true adventuring fashion, we decided to go off the trail and climb up to the top a different way. There we saw some pretty overviews of the city as well as a group of horseback riders. While the hike was a little steep, the view was definitely worth it! I loved using the lighting to get some beautiful cityscape and golden portrait shots. Here are some of the pics I snapped while there!
