Mansion in the mist

We are getting a bit of "June gloom" - the coastal fog that covers the LA basin especially in the mornings and afternoons. The mansion is one of many in Palos Verdes Estates, the first city developed on the peninsula in the 1920's.

There is a lot of brush and grass in the area not to mention trees. I wonder if this area has been burned off in previous years? The photo is nice and the fog is clearly visible in the hills beyond the house.

Looks like a lovely place to live in (I mean the area, not necessarily the mansion—must be tough to clean, lol!).

But why does the brush look like it's been burned recently?

A very nice photo of a great mansion!
You have some great photos here, hope we can keep in blog touch!

The foreground is just dried-up plants, it's not burned. The eucalyptus trees really make this region of the hill green -- every one of them is an import.

Hi,

Maybe we should try to avoid duplicating our photos. I've deliberately been avoiding PVE, Rolling Hills, and RHE. I'll leave those for you, if you let me post the pictures from RPV. I think that we both have enough beautiful sites not to run out. I like your blimp picture, too.

Fantastic browns and greens in the foreground!
