Los Angeles, Calif.
San Gabriel Mountains Los Angeles, Calif.

The San Gabriel Mountains act as a backdrop to this view of Los Angeles, seen from above the Malibu coastline. The height of the mountains and other features is greatly exaggerated beyond how they would naturally appear.

In the right foreground are the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica. Further away are downtown Los Angeles and then the San Gabriel Valley. The San Fernando Valley appears in the left foreground.

A Landsat satellite image and a Shuttle Radar Topography Mission elevation model were used to created this view.
