More To Come......
Your view is wonderful, and the sunset pictures in the post a few down are just amazing. I take sunset pcitures from time to time, but it's hard to get around the bits of houses and trees that are in the way here

Thanks for sharing these photos of some really spectacular views to which we are treated here in the L.A. area. Love the look of a stormy cloudy sky, too. Surely wish we'd get some of those skies and rain, now.
Always sad to see to what our respiratory systems are sometimes subjected on those days when the skies aren't as clear. Some beautiful sunsets seem to come out of it sometimes, somehow.
Thanks for your welcoming visit to my new blog, and adding me to your blogroll (I left you a message at my place.) Have been enjoying your blog for some time, though I have often just read.
L.A. is L.A., but if you look close enough, you can see all it's wonderful gifts...like this view. Beautiful Naomi, truly.
You really do have a unique view, Naomi. There are so many trees around us that I would have to get in the car and travel 6-8 miles to get an unobstructed view of the sunset. You are lucky to be able to see that vista everyday.
The last time I was in LA, I saw that coppery-colored haze hanging in the air everyday, and especially when we flew out of the city. It is beautiful and ominous looking at the same time.
Thanks so much for your comments about the ceiling photos. They are remarkably clear, aren't they? My daughter and son-in-law gave me this camera - and I love it!
So lovely. I've been to LA once at relatives of my husband's who are up in the hills but not as high as you are.
I adore sunsets. Just completed a sunset over the Blue Ridge Mts. acrylic collage that I'm entering in an art show. Just doesn't compare to the real breathtaking scenese no matter how much I love creating. Nature's paintbrush is still far superior!P.S. (I Have a halloween pic of my daughter up w/ a humor post and it's not of the sunset variety...)
Awesome photos, Naomi. I have to agree, the views are spectacular and what a treat for you to be able to witness them like that. But such a shame the air quality is so poor....guess nothing is perfect, right?
Very cool! It's amazing how the same view can look so different.
you certainly do have a view to behold Naomi.. and you catch the subtle changes beautifully!
The yearly fires out there sadden me greatly.. but more so when they are deliberatly set like the last big one .. i know it's a sickness, but I hate to see nature on fire.
I get so confussed by directions..... that is why I loved living in Oklahoma City. You couldn't get lost. It was laid out on a square grid and the streets numbered from the middle out. The four quadrants of the town were NW, NE, SW, SE and all you had to do was find a cross street sign and know which way to go. I don't do circular cities very well.
Naomi, my camera is a Gateway, made by the same people who made Gateway computers. I am really surprised at how good the photos turned out. My only complaint is that in some of them, the colors are muted (see the newest post), although to be fair, the colors in the Duomo were muted too.
Wow! Whatta view! The smoke one is scary! So is the pollution.
Awesome pictures! Just beautiful and dramatic!
I tried to take a pic of the moon last night. I'll see how well it came out!
i love california and these shots are lovely. i envy you your views.

I love the top view esp. :) That is a stunning photo. It's so clear today, isn't it? :)
Wow! You have a fantastic view Naomi! So beautiful looking East, South and West! Really all pictures are stunning, breathtaking! Thanks for sharing them!
Michele sent me back, Naomi. I have to say the view of the sunlit clouds and the tree in silhouette is my favorite.
Your view is gorgeous, wonderful pictures
Beautiful...except for the smog of course. :)
Michele sent me over to see your pictures, Naomi.
Those are very interesting pictures. The view from your deck changes quite a bit with the weather. You don't get a lot of rain there, but I bet when you do it's quite a spectacle at times. I remember when you showed some pictures of storm damage quite a while back.
The smog is a real problem. Given your situation, I'm sure it's on your mind a lot when you look out over the LA Basin.
You have one of the best views as any one I know.
I so hope on this next book maybe Martin's tour will include San Francisco. That would be a nice way for me to get out soon to Napa and then on over to see your hometown too! It looks beautiful there even with the smog!
You have wonderful views. I wouldn't mind just gazing out. Love photos #s1, 2 and 3.
What beautiful pictures, Naomi. You have caught LA wonderfully.
What a wonderful place to live.......
I love your view!!!
I miss having great views. When I lived in Brooklyn Heights I could see lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge and the East River.
Now, I can see trees from my deck (which is pretty) but a parking lot from my front windows. (which is not pretty) ;)
Happy Monday, Naomi!
Here via michele today.
As ever, thses are wonderful photos and you ahev a really amazing view. I think your pictures of downtown capture the contrast between things man made with the natural sky. And that sunset id lovely. I was driving accross the Severn Bridge the other day adn watched the sky change second by second. There was a full moon which was bright and glowing and it looked very drmatic as I drove over the bridge. As ever, thanks for sharing your pictures with us.
You certainly do have a view from your home Naomi, a very spectacular view of LA!! Such a wide view you have from being up in the hills. Too bad about the smog though, that is never good for breathing and especially for those with respiratory problems. Wonderful photos Naomi as usual!!
Great view. Few things can improve a home more than what's out the window.
Wow, you really do have quiet a view...So close to downtown but far enough away to be out of the city.
I could stare at those forever...
Updating my bookmarks... see you're still here. Looks different than I remembered. I've updated my stuff too - chimney rock
