You always see photos of the iconic HOLLYWOOD sign but usually not from this angle. Such a creative shot. I love it

Thank you, appreciate the compliment and comment. I always try to do the iconic shots a bit different!

Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this image on my birthday last year in Hollywood, California. A cold night, December 28th, three days after Christmas. It was an image that I had been wanting to get for some time, made the kids and wifey do the hike as well. Finished the evening off with Pinks Hotdogs, can't go wrong there!
Time
Captured at approximately 6:15 pm.
Lighting
Natural lighting coming from the setting sun to the west of the image.
Equipment
I used a 16-35mm f4L lens attached to my Canon 5D mkiii and my Vanguard Alta Pro 283CF Tripod.
Inspiration
I've seen many images from this location, however, not many during sunset and using a wide enough field of view to capture the whole sign. This is a very popular location and patience is required to capture an image free of meandering people!
Editing
Processed in Light Room, highlights, shadows, clarity, and saturation.
In my camera bag
I always carry more than I need in my camera bag; filters, three to four different focal length lenses, extra memory cards, lens cloths, remote trigger, extra battery, water, cell phone and $.
Feedback
Stay longer and later than you think, crowds dissipate quickly when the sun goes down. Using a longer exposure will enable you to capture the fleeting light. Clouds always make for a popping sunset!
