Always New

Every time we fly this area it’s new. Not just the different angles of light and qualities of air. Any slight dusting of rain like we had the day before these pix shifts the colors in vegetation, especially in surrounding wild country like our mountains.

Also different on this day was our route, since modest turbulence indicated by those puffy clouds kept many pilots waiting for our typical calm air. So we got this view over Hope Ranch into infinity with a clarity to Point Mugu and beyond that the camera didn’t capture.

A familiar favorite among our countless views of SB is this one past Shoreline Park and downtown to the sheltering mountains, now tinged with a subtly shifted green from that caress of light rain. Plants here are exquisitely responsive to moisture and tolerant of even exceptional droughts like we’ve been in. Another favorite view is this glance up State Street off Stearn’s Wharf and over the harbor and Mesa back toward distant Point Conception, again all but impossible to share with a camera but endlessly nourishing to our soaring hearts.
