UCSB Labyrinth

UCSB Labyrinth

Another peaceful spot. This is the stone Labyrinth at UCSB. If you follow the path around the Lagoon toward the southern most point of UCSB you come to a beautiful bluff overlooking, well, no end of amazing views. At this spot the students at UCSB have constructed this Labyrinth from stones and gravel. In the evening like this it's an absolutely amazing spot to be.

Storke Tower Lagoon Reflection

This view of Storke tower on the campus of UCSB is taken from the path around the lagoon by the residence halls. What an amazing view those halls must have. UCSB is an amazing place to be this time of evening. The combination of architecture, lighting and water makes for some breathtaking vistas.

This is another shot from my recent evening at UCSB. If you click on the thumbnails you can see the shot from the other day in full VR. Sometimes it's fun to see the same shot in a differet way.

UCSB University Center at Twilight

These days UCSB is rather deserted compared to its usually frantic level of energy. But even on a weekend after graduation, while wandering around the beautiful campus I could hear several different groups of people having a good time, cheering and laughing. The size of a small city itself, there is always something interesting going on there.

On the Goleta Pier at Sunset, Virtual Reality

The Goleta pier is a great place to watch the sunset. The sun sets right over UCSB this time of year and the veiw is spectacular! Especially on these days when we have a sunset that stretches to the other horizon.

UCSB offers no end of beautiful scenes, but one of its most immediately recognizable features is Storke Tower. Not just a simple bell tower, the bells in Storke Tower actually make up an instrument called a Carillon. It is played with closed fists on pegs in an arrangement similar to a piano or organ keyboard. Each peg rings a different bell.

UCSB Evening Path

This is an out-take from a shoot for an annual report. The only reason it was left behind on the first pass is the client was specifically looking for a two page spread. Of course when you have a beautiful evening you shoot everything that catches your eye. Invariably the client comes back looking for a different angle or more images. Or, at the very least you can come back a few months later and find some hidden gems that were overlooked on the first pass.

UCSB Starry Night

Walking at sunset around the campus of UCSB during a holiday break I thought I might find everything too quiet to get the photos I was looking for. But like any small city, there is always something going on there. I was happy to see some lights in the windows and the beautiful landscape lighting still on. This image was the last of the evening and one of my favorites.

Storke Sunset

This is an older image, from the building I used to work in at UCSB. My office was on the first floor but in the winter I liked to watch the sunset from this spot.

I used to work right by this tower. It was particularly interesting during the holidays. They played Christmas Carols most of the day.

Storke Sunset

This is the view from the top of the building I used to work in at UCSB. There were some particularly beautiful sunsets last winter and I tried to make a habit of going up to watch.
