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.
