Koi Pond

I love Koi. These beautiful fish are in a small Koi pond in Goleta. From the road all you see are office buildings, but when you explore a bit more you find an amazing peaceful spot with a small bridge over a Koi pomd. They were very cooperative, but I did have to promise them some snacks the next time I'm in the neighborhood.

Japanese Iris

We went for a walk the other day with The Hound. I was hoping to find something to shoot so I could finish out a roll of film with pictures of our sand-dragon. I was fortunate enough to find this flower blooming in a spot where the sun filtered through to it. They are very hard to find in nice shape, as soon as the sun hits them they curl up.

Another relaxing image from Lotusland.

I think I was in a peaceful mood last evening when I picked this image because I spent some time out at the butterfly overwintering spot yesterday. It is about the quietest place I can imagine especially without leaving a populated area.

I mainly went to enjoy the butterflies with my best friend for Valentine's day. But, there are a few pictures to come from the trip, and I scoped things out a little to to go back for some more serious photo sessions later this week.
