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.

Panoramic Santa Barbara
Panoramic view of Santa Barbara from Santa Barbara City College. On the right you can see the Santa Barbara Harbor and Stearns Wharf. All the way on the left peeking out from under the fronds is the Santa Barbara Courthouse Clock Tower.

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.

UCSB University Center Elevated Evening Virtual Reality View
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.

Westmont Evening Island View
Another one of the beautiful higher education opportunities in the Santa Barbara area, this is Westmont College out in Montecito. There are many beautiful views to choose from on this campus, but this has to be my favorite, from atop this large boulder overlooking (appropriately enough) The Adams Center for the Visual Arts, you can see all the way out to the Channel Islands.

Pacifica Graduate Institute Elevated Evening View
An elevated view of the Pacifica Graduate Institute Lambert Road campus. This beautiful campus just south on the 101 from Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to continue your education. I can't think of a better environment to concentrate on your studies.

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.

Santa Barbara California
View of Santa Barbara, and the Santa Barbara mountains from Santa Barbara City College overlooking Pershing Park. Santa Barbara City College has some amazing views. Most commonly, it's the view toward the harbor and wharf that I think of and photograph. But this is looking over Pershing Park, toward the city. In my experience talking to people about my photos of our beautiful city, the tourists love the beach views, but the locals think of views like this when they think of home.

Storke Twilight Vertical Panorama
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.
