Sunset at the Griffith Observatory

I've always wanted to see this spot and finally got a chance!

The Griffith Observatory is one of those well-known Los Angeles spots, and I have wanted to visit it for a very long time.  On my recent trip to LA, my daughter and I headed up there for sunset one evening.  It was VERY busy but that was ok.  Luckily we had some nice light and I was able to get some shots like this one, as well as enjoy the incredible view over downtown LA from the back side of the building. 

Since it was a fun trip for my daughter and I, I opted to leave most of the gear at home and travel light.  This meant one camera and one prime lens attached to it (and no tripod).  Luckily, I had just gotten the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.4 prime lens for my Sony camera, and decided to bring that one to test it out.  I loved it!  As I get more shots with it, I will share more details about the lens.  But suffice it to say that it worked really well for me!
