    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.

    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.

    Taken in 2012 in northwest Florida, just as the sun started heading toward the horizon. The summer haze quickly faded and all of the colors started to "pop" along Boggy Bayou.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    In 2012, just as I finished taking a bunch of sunset shots towards the west in eastern New Mexico, near Clovis, I turned around and saw this view to the east. Sometimes a moon rise can be almost as spectacular as a sunset.

    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.
