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.

Nojoqui Falls

Sometimes I like to play with Photoshop a bit!

It has been really hazy this year, not very conducive to scenery and architecture photos of Santa Barbara. (although I have been thinking about some cool evening photos through the fog).

But the wet weather has it\'s benefits. Nojoqui Falls, just up 101 from Santa Barbara, is only a trickle in the summer and on dry years. This is a photo I took a few years ago, but all the greyness in Santa Barbara has been making me think about the need for a trip somewhere north of here. Not that I really need much of an excuse to go exploring with my camera! :-D

Oh, by the way, there is some debate as to how you pronounce "Nojoqui". Some people insist it is na-ho-KEY or no-ho-KEY, but most locals pronounce it nah-WHO-wee and that is how I learned to say it.

San Diego Water Fall

This is a shot from a couple of years ago. We used to celebrate my best friend's birthday in La Jolla (pronounced Lah-HOY-ya. It is right outside of San Diego for all you non-Californians.)

On this particular birthday she wanted to go to a botanical garden we had heard about, and it was beautiful!
