Last weekend’s sunsets in Santa Barbara were ridiculous. They’ve been pretty dramatic in SoCal the last few weeks, thanks to Santa Ana winds. I don’t know if there was an offshore flow/Sundowner going on in SB, but we stood in awe at Arroyo Burro Beach on Dec. 16, watching as the sky turned from blue to pink to a garish orange and magenta. Oh, and we were equally awed by an amazing acoustic show by Jeff Tweedy a few nights earlier at the Granada Theatre. We bow in his honor.
Here’s how the sunset progressed on Dec. 16…the colors intensified by the minute:
If you’re wondering what time the sun rises and sets every day, the iPhone app I like is called Sunrise and Sunset. It takes your GPS location and gives you the aforementioned times, along with hours of daylight that day and allows you to search for sunrises/sets for other dates and locations. And starting tomorrow, the days get longer by a minute….summer, here we come!
