I saw this in the lock screen of Windows, wondering where this is. Any clues?

For the sake of being first to answer, I think it's just So.Cal.

I'd say "Los Angeles from somewhere like Griffith Park".

The hill in front looks wrong but the buildings look correct.

Found it ..

https://www.tineye.com has it where, surprisingly, Google reverse image totally failed.

Unless this photographer bloke is just completely making stuff up, it's a picture by Carl Larson


"Taken on November 7, 2016"

"Another shot of the great sunset from my night at Griffith Park. All the colors in the rainbow!"

Sony ILCE-7R FE70-200mm ƒ/8.0 70.0mm 0.5s ISO200

(The guy actually gives the full EXIF data there which is neat!)

  • It's weird. SOME of the buildings look correct and some look wrong! – Fattie Oct 3 '18 at 19:24
  • LA was my first thought too, but there don't seem to be enough skyscrapers. – zeocrash Oct 3 '18 at 19:41
  • This is a photo of LA from Griffith Park cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/BDObVrteTS2tQ4x4EyfSUxKD1Mg=/… – zeocrash Oct 3 '18 at 19:41
  • @Fattie Since the photo appears to be taken looking southwest, the buildings are probably Century City rather than DTLA. – choster Oct 3 '18 at 20:30
  • HI @PeterM ! ? Prime lenses are cheaper than zoom lenses. – Fattie Oct 3 '18 at 21:20
