A while back, my MGL V6 radio crapped the bed and put me back in my pre-redundant-radio situation. Not a big deal, and especially now, because I really, really wanted to see Santa Monica at sunset in a plane I built myself. I needed to get some fuel anyway, so I headed up to the airport and got going.
That nest of snakes down there is the I-10/I-405 interchange. The sun is setting on the Santa Monica bay.
Heading east, towards Hollywood. The sun hitting the buildings at this time of day is almost as cool as the sun hitting the water.
An attempt to compose the photo to look like the City of Santa Monica signage. This is a bit of an FU to the airport-closing shenanigans the city pulls every chance they get.
