Hiking to the Hollywood Sign

 
 

Los Angeles is surrounded on three sides by mountains reaching up to and over 10,000 feet. On Mount Lee, sits the American cultural icon that is the Hollywood Sign. One afternoon I decided to jump in a cab to the Griffith Observatory and spent the rest of the evening exploring the Hollywood Hills and making my way behind those famous letters.

The Hollywood Sign

"HOLLYWOOD" is spelled out in 44-foot white capital letters and is 352 feet long. Basically, it's too big to get in one picture! Below, is the best I could do, shooting without a tripod. It's a panoramic of 3 photos stitched together in Lightroom and then edited in photoshop. Let me know what you think!

Fun Fact: The sign was originally created in 1923 as an advertisement for a local real estate development, but due to increasing recognition and symbolism, the sign was left up.
