Forceful winds cleared the local environment of air pollution and ambient moisture that morning which would have normally created poor visibility throughout the Los Angeles Basin area. Digitally recorded and compiled from the peak of the "Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook State Park" on 1/1/2011 "New Years Day", this breathtaking panoramic view ushered in 2011 after a lengthy winter storm that brought a major record breaking snowfall to the surrounding Mountains. Infinitely clear and visible for mega-miles in a 360 degree cycloramic perspective, this partial panorama spans from Mid-Wilshire and the Downtown areas to the San Gabriel Mountains in the background.
