Sultry Solstice

Congratulations on the best Solstice cover ever! She is amazing, beautiful, sexy, inviting and so real! Fritz’s shot is perfection.

She is a great antidote to the commercialization and Showgirl-itis that has taken over Solstice in the last few years. Thanks for choosing such a universally appealing image.

Long live Santa Barbara Solstice!
