I captured this dramatic sunset during one of the most amazing and constantly changing sky displays I have ever witnessed. I was on top of Signal Hill (California, USA), which has a 360-degree view including Los Angeles to the north and Long Beach to the south. This view is west toward Palos Verdes Peninsula (the gentle hill), San Pedro and Wilmington (you may be able to make out part of the ConocoPhillips Wilmington refinery at the lower right). The lights come from San Pedro and Wilmington (communities near the Port of Los Angeles, which adjoins the Port of Long Beach.) This is a semi-panoramic crop, not a true multi-shot pano.
