A Hollywood sunset

Christian Alarcon was hiking in Griffith Park one winter day when he stumbled upon a bike. "I was wandering up around the trails throughout the afternoon with my camera (Canon 60D) as I waited for the sun to set."

Taking advantage of a perfect opportunity, Alarcon snapped a shot of the bike with the Hollywood sign and mountains in the background as the sun began to set over Los Angeles.
