Visually, the L.A. River between Fletcher Avenue and Los Feliz Boulevard is in the zone right now. The sweet spot. Especially in the later afternoon hours.Â I love the river 365 days a year but there’s just something about these days before and after the summer solstice (today) where the setting sun’s situation in the sky couples with a certain clarity of the visibility that makes the place uniquely beautiful. As if in this brief period , she’s neither under- nor over-exposed. Just right. The greens are greener, the sunshine reflects off the water wonderfully and everything’s bathed in a beautiful golden sheen, making even the concrete compelling.
You should go now if you get the chance.
