After a really cold week and several nights of frost, mother nature delivered some warm weather and a beautiful sunset.
I'm taking these photos from the pier in Goleta Beach. Campus Point is the whole area of land that extends into the ocean in the background. That is where the campus of UCSB is located. It's a great location for a college. Whenever I see clouds like this, I know it's going to be a great sunset.
The colors gradually begin to shift, but within five minutes, the change is dramatic.
I took this photo after the sun had completely set using a long exposure.
It was completely dark when I shot this photo of the campus lights. It's a fun little experiment that I continue to play with whenever I have my camera with me after it gets dark.
Every person, place or thing has unique qualities that make it special.
My mission is to discover the most interesting characteristics about my subject and transfer those qualities into a piece of art.
Although fabric, paint, dye and stitching are generally used, the final image is as unique as the original inspiration.
