    This sunset image was taken in 2012 in northwest Florida. Boggy Bayou turns into Tom's Bayou on the other side of the bridge. As vehicles pass over the bridge, their tires make a light thumping noise that makes one wax nostalgic. My brothers and I used to fish from that bridge with my father when we were children back in the early 1970's.

    Taken in 2012 on Boggy Bayou in northwest Florida near Destin and Fort Walton Beach. I don't "do" many sunrise pictures since I normally go to bed about an hour or so before it occurs.

    I lived on an old ranch in eastern New Mexico for a couple of years. This image was shot in 2012. I asked the landlord how long the truck had been sitting in that same exact spot and he said it had been there at least since the late 1960's. The truck itself is much older than that.

    Anyone who sits in one of those chairs for more than a minute or two will be able to witness mullet as they gleefully jump out of the water. The distant call of a seagull will eventually be heard and a wandering pelican or blue heron just might show up unannounced.

    I took this photo in 2012 in eastern New Mexico as I watched a thunderstorm start to build on the western horizon while the sun was going down. It was quite a sight to behold.

    I grew up on Boggy Bayou in northwest Florida and it's where I escape to often. The small twin communities of Niceville and Valparaiso,Florida sit along the shores of the bayou. When I look at this picture I get a sense of nostalgia and a renewed connection to my hometown.

    There is nothing more soothing and calming to one's soul as there is walking along Bayshore Drive in Valparasio, Florida and looking across Boggy Bayou towards Niceville at sunset.

    The sunsets in eastern New Mexico are incredible, especially when you can view them while being way out in the country away from buildings and such that can block the view. This image was taken in 2012.

    One of my favorite spots on Boggy Bayou to stand or sit and watch the sun set behind the Tom's Bayou bridge in Valparaiso, Florida. The closet thing to paradise this side of heaven.

    1. Southern California term for something so epic, so radical, so extreme, and so memorable that no image could more aptly sum it up than a dank, epic, dubstep sunset.
