Yes the mountains look cool. Photo suggestions  -- a good photo has foreground subject and background.  The more distracting elements you can remove from the photo the better, in particular telephone wires and distracting objects.  leading lines like the road in this picture tend to lead the eye in a specific direction and as long as they point toward the subject you are ok where if they  point out of the frame of the picture they become distracting.  A little cropping can go a long way toward improving many photos things like the car to the left can be easily eliminated just by cropping down.  One way to block unwanted elements is the angle you select to shoot the photo from and what you can find to block out unwanted elements.  For example you can get down low next to a flower bed, rock outcropping, bush etc that may block distracting elements or fill in (foreground) with a  (subject) mountains etc. and sky (background).  Note in most circumstances the less of the sky in the photo the better as it usually looks white or grey due to the limits of film. A polarizing filter can help to make the sky look blue or a colored filter say orange or red can be added and some are graduated from clear to orange etc. This adds interest by creating in camera something that was never really there. Now this is often done after the fact by computer enhancement but a lot can be done in camera that will prevent having to computer enhance it later.  Good start - get better and enjoy having created something special.

Can't own a phone that takes pictures.  Pretty good picture for a phone, though.

Cool pic Monster. I've only been to Kalifornia twice. The neat thing about the place (at least where my brother lives in Orange Co.) is you can be in any kind of climate or terrain you want in two hours drive time. We went to his office once at Norton AFB and he pointed out a view of a C130 setting on a ramp in the desert with palm trees in the foreground and snow capped mountains in the background; and this was in June.

The other thing I liked about the LA area was watching all the beeuutiful women walking around the beach in bikinis and high heels. Didn't make much sense, but I liked it.

Kalifornia is one of the few TRUE communist states left in the world (of course until Obama became president... now we are all sliding down the slope).

Look at the rules and restrictions on firearms, the intervention of govt in people's lives.  Look at the rulings of the 9th Circus Court.  It is the model for Marxism.

Sorry, it is actually the 9th Circuit Court, most often overturned court in the entire court system in the U.S. (by the Supreme Court).  The judges on the 9th Circus have NO care or understanding of the Constitution of the U.S.  They "create law" rather than interpret, which is illegal and therefore the reason why they are so often overturned.  8 of the 9 should be impeached and removed.

The continuing creep toward Marxism in Kalifornia is one of the reasons I left the best job on earth.  Some things just cannot be tolerated, no matter what the "fun factor" of the employment is.
