    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.

    This image was taken at sunset in 2012 on the high plains of eastern New Mexico. There was a lot of smoke on the horizon from a fire on the western side of the state that day and so it did a superb filtering job on the sun as it set.

    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.

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

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
