The pool atop the Canary Hotel in downtown SB was the first thing guessed by an Edhat reader in the enigmatic second collection of seven I submitted yesterday. This shot shows more context, but I’d cropped the Edhat one so it only shows the pool making it hard to tell it’s on the roof. Somehow a reader was familiar enough with it to recognize it from the air at night, even though it’s the tallest building in that area and very few people fly over the city at night with enough time to pick out landmarks. Pretty impressive!

Santa Barbara High School’s stadium looked really cool, with athletes and spectators seemingly unaware of the night just beyond the lights.

I like the accent of bright lights hitting the trees to give everything an ethereal frame, and took another shot from a different angle on the return flight.
