Whale’s Eye View of Ty Warner Sea Center

Santa Barbara Virtual Reality/ 3D Photo of the Week by Bill Heller.

Did you ever wonder if it was possible to have an aquarium so big you could keep a pet whale? It would seem I’m not the only one who ponders these things. This is the Ty Warner Sea Center on Stearns Wharf. They have created a wonderful place to learn about the ocean and its inhabitants, as well as a home with an amazing view for a beautiful whale.

If you have problems with the VR viewer, please contact me here.

    Oh, too bad. Photo no longer available. It worked for the prior Vedanta photo. What changed?

    • Last week’s image was a still photo, no viewer required. If you want to email me (contact me here and I’ll send you my email). I’d be glad to try to figure out why it does not work on your machine. I’ve tested on at least 6 different macs from OS X 10.4 to 10.8. It’s really hard to fix what I can’t duplicate.

    Works great on my iPhone, Mac and PC – these are wonderful! Thank you. Great spot choice this week and stunning colors as usual.

    • Thanks Anonymous! Both for your kind feedback and for testing! Those are the colors that I go for. The warm yellow glow of the lighting, with the lingering blue in the sky is one of my favorite combinations to capture!
