There have been a string of great mornings in Santa Barbara lately, though the streak has ended. This was around 6:30 AM on 12-12-19. Three frame horizontal stitch pano created in Photoshop. Phantom 4 Pro. Click image to see larger.

Really nice.
I'm confused. I thought the mountains were in the east and the ocean was in the west. You have all these sunrises over water.
The Santa Barbara coastline and mountains trend east-west, so that in summer, the sun rises and sets behind the mountains. Now in wintertime, the sun rises and sets over the ocean.

Aw you're killin' me! I have to get up early and try a bit of this.
I'm temporarily in Goleta for what will probably be a few more weeks, maybe a month, then it's back down to Camarillo. You're work is very inspirational to me.
I bought a used P4P and am still building my confidence flying it, when I can. I've been working 7 days a week for over ten hours a day but am taking Monday and Tuesday off.

RBuzz, thank you. It is not like this every morning. I monitor the Weather Underground 10 day forecast and look for 'cloud cover' indications. Then I get up around 5:45 and peek out the window that gives me a partial view, and if I see pre-dawn dark streaky clouds, I drive to the shore, less than 10 minutes as I live downtown. There are some convenient places to fly from around the harbor. Maybe we can meetup there some day.

Sounds good. I was over in your area yesterday messing with the Phantom and may today. It was some park along the southern beach area
