Johanna Siegmann went to Griffith Park on March 13 to see the columns of light that illuminated the 2015 L.A. Marathon course.
She said she had a hard time capturing the light beams initially but that near the observatory she found just the right spot.
"Together with the cluster of beams, the moonlit dirt road and the giant silhouette of the tree, I knew this was the shot," she said.
Siegmann used a Nikon D750.
