For whatever reasons---the ocean, the smog, the latitude, whatever---Los Angeles has some gorgeous sunsets. We see it constantly in our Flickr and Instagram feeds; sunset photos taken from the beach, the mountains, the rooftops, you name it. We understand: we love the sunsets, also. When shot with a slightly shifted perspective and a take all its own, photos of sunsets can be compelling, too. Photographer Ric Berryman contributed this photo of the first sunset of 2014 and double-framed it: not only does the sunset fill the entire space of the photo, but it forces the perspective onto the phone of this photographer he noticed.

In Thursday's “Scandal” season finale, Olivia finally seizes the opportunity to stand in the sun, boarding a plane bound for who-knows-where with Jake at her side, if not exactly in her heart. After the death of little Jerry, the bombing at Sen. Hightower's funeral and her own father's stabbing, Olivia decides that she is the real scandal, the common denominator in all the misfortune around her. What Olivia doesn't know is that by leaving, she won't be making things better, she's removing the last obstacle standing in the way of the person who's truly the problem -- dear old Dad. It's essentially a replay of her sabotage of B613 two weeks ago, which she thought would solve all her problems but only ended up putting Fitz's life in danger.

If you’ve wondered whether Al Capone or Robert Stroud (the “Birdman”) haunt Alcatraz, an upcoming cruise-tour might let you glimpse a specter. The long-established Red and White Fleet plans to launch a “ City Lights Cruise ” next month that will depart around sunset. It will cruise along the San Francisco waterfront past Ft. Mason, the marina and the Presidio and then loop around the infamous former prison island, among other sights. It will also cross under the Golden Gate and Bay bridges.

A newly identified landscape painting believed to have been created by Vincent Van Gogh in 1888, just two years before his death, was unveiled Monday by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. "Sunset at Montmajour" depicts a wooded area near Arles in the south of France. The museum said that the work dates from around the same period that Van Gogh created his famous "Sunflowers" painting. The museum said it has spent two years authenticating the piece, using historic records, X-ray analysis and other techniques.  ART: Can you guess the high price?

If you haven't yet seen the critically acclaimed romantic drama “Before Midnight” consider some binge watching of the “Befores” that came before. “Before Midnight” is only the latest creative collaboration by  director Richard Linklater and the movie's stars Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. A ll three had a hand in writing these candid films. I did, and I have to say it was quite something to see it all of a piece. Begin, of course, with Celine (Delpy) and Jesse's (Hawke)

The 30-year-old self-proclaimed Persian princess, who doesn't shy away from confrontation or dropping expletives, explains her simple tastes. "There are two things I don't like.

Some garden advice can be heeded no matter where you live. But much in gardening and landscaping revolves around the specifics of location - weather, terrain, soil type and design preferences. That's where the redesigned and updated "Sunset Western Garden Book of Landscaping," edited by Sunset magazine's Kathleen Norris Brenzel (Oxmoor House, $29.95, paper), has an edge over a more general guide. A section on plants, for example, includes chapters on palms, ornamental grasses, tropicals, succulents, cactus and natives.

 In a very competitive Sunset League, Huntington Beach Edison (11-3, 3-0) might be considered an early season surprise under first-year Coach Cameron Chinn. But don't tell that to pitcher Noah Kronfly, who improved to 4-0 on Friday and outdueled UCLA-bound Jacob Nix in a 1-0 victory over Los Alamitos. Phillip Knapp drove in the game's only run with a second-inning RBI single. Kronfly allowed two hits. Fountain Valley defeated Newport Harbor, 10-0. Dylan Persinger hit a two-run home run. Brock Lundquist hit his fourth home run of the season.

A long-vacant office tower in a complex on Sunset Boulevard designed decades ago by famed Los Angeles architect William Pereira is being transformed into an upscale 96-unit apartment building known as the Elysian. The sparsely occupied stretch of Sunset on the eastern edge of Echo Park was perhaps best known as the office headquarters of the Metropolitan Water District, which provides drinking water to six southern California counties, until it moved downtown in 1994. The tower has been vacant since the MWD moved, said Leonard Hill, a partner at Linear City Development.

The Sunset Strip isn't exactly the place where religious values have flourished, but back in the 1970s, it was home to the nation's first Christian nightclub. The spot was called Right On, and it was described in an Aug 19, 1971, story in The Times . It had a neon sign and was “psychedelically decorated,” but beyond that it probably didn't have much in common with its Strip neighbors. The clientele were “clean-cut, finely pressed, hair in place, mother's dream, Orange County safe, and even bushy-tailed,” reporter Alan Cartnal wrote.

Some people think of watching a sunset on the beach as a romantic way to start an evening. When the wind is blowing, however, it becomes a slightly different experience. As Molly Fast said of this photo taken on Feb. 1 in Santa Monica, the weather was "so windy you could barely see in front of you. " Still, even a windy day at the beach is better than a polar vortex.  Follow Armand Emamdjomeh on Twitter or Google + . Each week, we're featuring photos of Southern California submitted by readers.
