    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.

    Taken on Boggy Bayou in 2012. That body of water in northwest Florida is home to blue heron, seagulls, pelicans, bald eagles, and many more types of birds.

    So many colors but so little time to take them all in as the sun quickly sets behind Tom's Bayou bridge in northwest Florida. My eleven year old son, Christopher is buried in Sunset Cemetery that overlooks Tom's Bayou and the western horizon.

    Tropical paradise in northwest Florida along the shores of Boggy Bayou. It's a great place to hail from! Every evening stroll is different.

    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.

    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.

    New Mexico Crescent Sun
    I took this photograph in May of 2012 while living in New Mexico. I'd never seen a crescent sun before caused by an eclipse, its was a spectacular thing to witness. The sunsets in the southwestern part of America can be pretty incredible.

    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.

    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.

    Gnarly/närlé/ Adjective
    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.
