Here is a post left over from the early oil industry development at Sands Beach and Ellwood area. Cris Sandoval the Director at Coal Oil Point shows how much sand has washed away after this years storm.

Andrew Florin. arf@umail.ucsb.edu Photo taken above IV Beach, January 7, 2010. This photo for me symbolizes the peace and stability that the community of UCSB and IV deserves. No matter how long and exhausting the week, and in some cases the weekend, can be, its gratifying to just sit back and take in the sunset and surf. That's worth protecting.

Javier Martinez Photo taken by the UCSB Lagoon javier_martinez01@umail.ucsb.edu The bizarre or the unusual here is simply the fact that in contrast to seeing beer cans or paper trash strewn about UCSB's coast, this image conveys how a clean coast coupled with the red-orange glow of a setting sun, is something that should motivate and inspire cleanliness on this and every coastline. A clean coastline will ensure that beach goers will be able to enjoy the natural treasures in life like the beauty and colors of a setting star.

As the sun fades away on the Isla VIsta horizon, all thats remains is the shadow of a lonely surfer, and his hope for a perfect wave. The oil rig companions the sun as a constant reminder of human reliance on nature. Along Del Playa. by: Allina Mojarro amojarro@umail.ucsb.edu

This is a glass shard found in an old trash pit located on the cliff of 68 block. This old fashioned jug was once buried along with many others in this trash pit that I found when walking along the very edge of of the cliff in Iv, This shows that in time nature will uncover what trash that we leave in her.

Ellwood-Beach
Britta Gustafson, Ellwood beach near the Sandpiper Golf Course, brittag@umail.ucsb.edu. These old wooden poles at Ellwood illustrate a complex human relationship with the local beach that extends back thousands of years. The scene includes: piles of stones balanced by contemporary visitors as a non-polluting way to enjoy and decorate the beach, wood pilings anonymously planted decades ago to defend the bluff from erosion, and camouflaged pieces of rusty metal left by hundreds of years of industrial oil and fishing activity.

Jordan Laband. Photo taken at UCSB West Campus. 1/9/10. jordanlaband@umail.ucsb.edu. I managed to capture the raw beauty of this sunset in Santa Barbara. It is hard to imagine how this view may change in the future because of the horrible damage we are causing on this planet. This amazing sight reminds us all to take care of our beaches and enjoy what beauty is left for us.

Jordan Laband. Photo taken at UCSB West Campus, January 9, 2010, jordanlaband@umail.ucsb.edu. This photo shows humans and nature in harmony together. The tide is coming in as a surfer in the left hand corner makes his way down the beach. An oil rig in the background offsets the gorgeous California sunset with its rich colors and blending hues. One can see the delicate balance of life in Santa Barbara as the land, the sea, and mankind all coexist as one in this unique and prosperous environment.

Although a broken surfboard serves limited purpose to a surfer, its material's potential is endless.
