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.
I LOVE color. It's so much fun adding layers of dye and paint to create fabric that is beautiful and unique. I often combine my hand painted fabric along with commercial and batik fabric. Sometimes, I even use the back side or add a layer of tulle on top to shift the color. In other words, I'll use whatever works best for each piece.
