Night shot in Los Angeles harbor

Thought I'd share a few cool photos taken in the evening at the Los Angeles & Long Beach harbor recently.

In the sunset pic you can probably barely make out the 3 smoke stacks in the distance next to the white dome. That is the Queen Mary cruise ship. The white dome used to house Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose.

Would have been nice beeing out boating when I stayed at Santa Monica last November looking over the Santa Monica beach and seeing part of the Malibu beach, there where not many boating although too warm temperature for me mid 70īs to mid 80īs.

Planning a trip to San Fransico as now direct flights from Iceland and return fare parice offered GBP 329,- (USD 608,-)

Wierd!!

Hey Boatster,
thought you were "pulling our Plonkers!" when I first saw the Sunset photo
Thought, hang on, the sun sets in the West over the water;not behind the city in the East !!
Then checked out the chart and figured out just where you took the shot from.So in Queensway bay (maybe off the harbour jetty there?) and looking back across SouthEast basin.
So did you launch from the ramp by the Catalina Express offfice or just cruising around?
Can you get close to the queen Mary to get photos?( Looks like a boom or breakwater around her on the chart)
I had one taken next to her 40 years ago when I was a "nipper" so be kind of nice to get another one.
Off to Catalina on the 20th, so if it's choppy will drop the kids on the ferry and meet them over there; so would have to go right past the Queen.
cheers Dal

The weather can get a little cool in the evenings. It hasn't quite warmed up around here (June gloom). Besides I love being warm and toasty regardless of the conditions

Limeydal,

You can get right up to the Queen Mary if you like. It sits right in the channel. There is a small barrier around it. That boat has been sitting there since I can remember.

I launched from Cabrillo and boated roughly 8 miles east towards Long Beach and Belmont Shores. The summer sun sets behind the Palos Verdes Hill and gives that Eastern city look I guess.

The weather on the water lately has been crappy to say the least. I've noted only a few good days for channel crossing. BTW I found a few more wind URLs if you are interested. I'm not sure if I shared these with you already:
http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/forecasts/gr...ectors/lox.php
http://www.nawcwpns.navy.mil/~weather/current.htm
So far they have been spot on for my channel crossing predictions. I hope by the 20th things get better
