In 2014, President Obama designated a portion of the San Gabriel Mountains as a National Monument. Located northeast of Los Angeles, California, these mountains often experience a weather phenomenon of inversion clouds called “marine layer” due to their proximity to the cold Pacific Ocean. From 2012 to 2017, I frequented the San Gabriel Mountains recording time lapse footage in a variety of weather conditions and seasons to showcase the natural beauty of these mountains.
