Every day is a work of art! Although the weather conditions can be similar
and there are things I look for to give me hints where to stand with my camera,
I never cease to be in awe of the individual beauty of each day. I can return
to the same spot over and over, but there is always something new to see. This
is from one of my favorite perches in the foothills overlooking the Santa
Barbara Harbor, Stearns Wharf and Santa Cruz Island in the distance. This is
the direction I like to face on a clear evening with high beautiful clouds like
this. On an evening like this it's tempting to go somewhere and watch the sun
set over the hills or at the beach. But when the conditions are right, the glow
cast by that spectacular sunset can bathe everything in a wonderful new light.
If you take the time to look around and not be distracted by the obvious show,
sometimes you'll find something even more amazing. And if you can manage it,
don't ever loose that sense of wonder, It makes every day amazing!
