Downtown Los Angeles Skyline in 4k!!

Glazed Aerials

Los Angeles was slower to develop a world class skyline compared to New York and Chicago, despite long ago surpassing Chicago to become the USA's second largest city.  With a skyscraper building boom in the 1980's and an even bigger one in the 2010's, LA now has a skyline which matches the size of the city.  In this remarkable video, contributor Glazed Aerials flew a drone amidst the canyons of downtown LA to provide an amazing aerial perspective of this ever changing city.

Silicon Beach Surfers - Malibu, CA


Although surfing didn't originate in California, it was in the Golden State where an obscure activity which originated in the South Pacific migrated (by way of Hawaii) and became transformed into a mainstream activity seen throughout the world.  The cauldron where this occurred was in the string of beach communities west of Los Angeles from Huntington Beach to Malibu.  Contributor Sky.shots brings us this drone video of surfing in this legendary area, now referred to as Silicon Beach.

Sunset in Downtown Los Angeles

Dave Yip

DAve Yip created this amazing aerial video of downtown Los Angeles at sunset.  As LA grew into the ranks of the USA's largest cities, it was often derided for not having a skyline worthy of a large city.  For example, it didn't have a single large building over 150 meters (around 500 ft.) until 1968, by which point New York and Chicago had dozens.  That's changed thanks to a series of skyscraper building booms which began in the late 1960's, the latest of which is still very much in progress.

Taking Flight over the Venice Canals Historic District


One look at this drone video from Skybounddrones will tell you where the city of Venice, California got its name. The town was built by millionaire Abbot Kinney in the early 1900's, who bought a stretch of coastline south of Santa Monica and decided to call it Venice in recognition of the canals which were needed to drain its marshes and make it habitable.  Today, it's one of the most fashionable spots along the line of beach communities referred to as Silicon Beach.
