Reader Photo: Stream of cars on Mt. Hollywood Drive

Tatsuya Ouchi, an international student from Japan, saw Mt. Hollywood in Griffith Park for the first time eight months ago. In April, he climbed to the top to catch the sunset.

Ouchi stayed there well into the night, enjoying the nightscape. Looking toward the foot of the mountain, he saw what looked like an endless stream of cars. That looks just like a red river, he thought.

Ouchi took this 30-second exposure photo with a Canon EOS 60D.
