For the previous 5 days before this one severe weather plagued the Los Angeles area with heavy rainfall and snow in the mountains. Usually in such an event LAX is turned around with arrivals and departures using the 6 & 7 complexes. Luckily another weather event for later that day kept the winds blowing off shore and gave us this rare opportunity to shoot a clear and sunny reverse pattern. Here we see Fed Ex 1508 from MEM touching down on 7R, with the snow covered San Gabriel Mountains in the background. Local time was 08:12 for her arrival.

what an excellent shot! Nice light and a high visibility, the Hollywood sign seems to be more in the foreground than in the background, though the mountains are far away. That

Great shot. San Gabriel Mountains and the Hollywood sign in the background. Ultra clear day and rare at LAX
