Santa Barbara Breakwater Sunset
Sunset above the Santa Barbara Breakwater.
I like the way this photo shows the shelter of
the breakwater as your view moves across the beautiful waves on the outside
to the small ripples in the harbor. Either way the water is beautiful!

Harbor View Panorama
The Santa Barbara Harbor, a great place to be whether you have a boat or not. Aside from the great selection of restaurants, it's a wonderful place to just wander and enjoy the ocean and the views of the city.

Santa Barbara Lights
Click the main image for a larger view.
This is the third and last shot from our walk on the breakwater the other evening. (Actually it's 48 shots but who's counting?)
It was an amazingly beautiful evening. And I was happy to get out to the breakwater this late since I have been pondering a shot like this for a while.
If you would like a quick tour of our beautiful home, read on... The water on the left is the inside of the Harbor. The buildings from yesterday's photo of the day and the day before are just on the other side of the harbor at the left. You can see the tall white flood lights of the Santa Barbara City College field. The field of view in this image is 248° so the flags that you see at the left and the very right are acutally (more or less) in a straight line. Straight out the rock breakwater in the middle of the shot is the entrance to the harbor. And, some of the bright lights on the other side of the entrance are along Stearn's Wharf. The large bright white light further to the right is another ball field. The glow going up the mountain is the lights of the city, and you can see our evening fog rolling in especially at the right over the bright white light.

Santa Barbara Harbor Sunset
Well, Monterey was amazing, but it is always good to be home. This is one of my favorite places for an evening walk in Santa Barbara. Walking out the breakwater is one of the best places to enjoy the sunset. And if you turn around from where I took this photo you can see Stearns Wharf across the opening of the harbor, and watch the sailboats come and go. Of course if you have Flash installed you can see for yourself here. Just use the "up arrow" to zoom in.

Another shot from our recent wanderings at the Santa Barbara harbor. It's a nice peaceful scene, but just to my left was a popular restaurant on a balcony overlooking the harbor. There were lots of people around waiting to get in and having a good time. Next time I'll get an image that includes the restaurants.

Santa Barbara Sunset Harbor
We spent a couple of evenings walking around the Harbor
watching the sun set this week. I think I could take a walk at the Harbor
and the Wharf every night with my camera and never get bored.
Every evening when I get home each photo that I love
gives me the ideas for three more next time.
This one was partially inspired by another vertical panorama I took at the harbor almost two years ago. It was later in the evening when I took that one, and you can see the stars. But at the time I wondered what it would look like from the other direction with the sunset sky. Now I have my answer!

Santa Barbara Harbor Sunset view from the Breakwater
Another beautiful sunset and another massive image. If you look closely you can see stearns wharf in the image off to the right. (if you have Flash 9 installed, you can use the up arrow to zoom in)
