They are visible like 75%+ of the time, and most of time when they aren't visible it's due to the marine layer. Smog in the downtown area seems to only be really bad these days when the brush fires are active. I can look out the front window of my office in El Segundo and seem them quite clearly today. Here's a good view of the LA skyline from Westwood, through Century City and Miracle Mile, down to downtown.

No, it shows the skyline from Westwood through downtown. Looks like it was taken from somewhere in the Sepulveda Pass.

Every time I see the LA skyline with a bit of haze around it, I can't think of anything but the opening credits to The A-Team.

Interesting photo- but LA is a bunch of skilines. Even Westwood and Century City and two different skilines, but the anlge of that photo makes them look as one. Neither is a particularly cool skiline in my opinion.

Los Angeles. Downtown is dense and the BOA Tower in the middle is a really nice building. Also, they have other skylines like Century City and Westwood. Century City by itself could almost give Dallas a run for its money in my opinion.
