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.

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.

Pacifica Graduate Institute - Campus Tour Guide by the Fountain
The other night I was at the Pacifica Graduate Institute taking some test shots for a project I'm working on. The light was not what I was looking for earlier in the evening, so I decided to shoot some other things and come back to see how things looked after dark. As soon as we got back, we met the campus tour guide. Not sure what his name is, but he showed us around the grounds pointing out his favorite spots. This spot in particular had a nice contemplative feel. Our feline guide was kind enough to pose and add some extra feeling to the scene. It was a very nice evening at a beautiful spot in Montecito.

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.
