Other Way

Looking the other way (South) from near Gibraltar Reservoir, the view across the Santa Ynez Mountains toward Santa Barbara was beautiful in the glow of approaching sunset.

I breathed another deep sigh looking at that just now. While flying, the rock formations caught my eye of course so I flew a bit closer and snapped this.

Any idea how many times I’d need to fly in a 10 mile radius of KSBA to get tired of it? Keep in mind, I’ve probably done it close to 1,000 times already. 🙂

ps-just realized I hadn’t posted any Gibraltar Dam pix here (several on Photo Page & Edhat links in the right column here). So here’s a closer view of the spillway just for you.

Looks like the builders left some of the original rock in place, and the veil splits on the second spillway from the right.
