For some reason I can't post more than one pic at a time, even though they are all the correct size. And some photos it wont post at all. WTF?

I'm an early morning riser...love me some sunrise sessions...early bird gets the wave(s)...;-)
Still gets me out of bed in the morning for dawn patrol...and, puts the stoke in my stroke...
In my mind, there's nothing more exciting than the anticipation of connecting with a building swell as the sun comes up...one of nature's finest gifts...
Funny thing is...it makes my afternoon sunset sessions all that more special...

Some of the most memorable sunsets that I have seen, were experienced in Mexico...
Used to travel to Puerto Escondido quite a bit in my prone short board days...and, the sunsets over the lighthouse always seemed to put an exclamation point on the end of a perfect surfing day...muy tranquilo...

These shots were taken from some property that we have down in the Baja...a remarkable peninsula...
The sunrises are truly eye poppers over the water...and, so are the sunsets back behind the mountains...
Add in the quiet...and, the desert scents...etc...after a day of surfing, windsurfing, or paddling...it's hard to stay awake much past 8 PM..."Baja midnight"...but, that puts you in position to take in the "Tequila sunrises"...;-)

Just bumped into these shots from a slideshow that I put together back in the late 80's while looking for shots of an old windsurfing buddy that just passed...

Stoked that the slides haven't suffered any real noticeable degradation after 30 years...

Looking across the Santa Barbara Channel at the Channel Islands...first one is from late November, 1989...the second was taken January, 1986...

It's a fact that we will all take in our last sunset someday...R.I.P. John Brady...aka "Shady Brady"...hat maker extraordinaire...

Aloha Warren.
I am so glad you are ok. Seeing your post and videos was just something else.
I actually watched the one video where the shots started. Couldn't watch the others after that and will never watch that one again.
I can't even really imagine. Getting sad and all sorts typing this out thinking about it.
Anyways.......thought I would post these here.
One last fall about this time, the other from the other night.
There is just something about that time of day no matter where you are.
Someone can improve on this one aye?

Aloha Mike,
Gorgeous images...thanks for the positive thoughts...

When I wrote this on the post above yours...

"It's a fact that we will all take in our last sunset someday..."

I never thought that October 1, 2017 at a music festival in Las Vegas looking into Kane Brown's eyes...singing along with my soul mate and 22000 other people as he performs "What Ifs", would be my last sunset...but, it almost was...ya just never know...it was the last sunset for the 58 souls that were lost that day in that desert city...lucky for Deb and I that it wasn't our time...despite being in the line of fire for 3 days that we were there...our first trip ever to Las Vegas...have only ever driven by on the way to Utah...but, there will come a time and I hope it's at least as good as any of the sunsets shared in this post...

The number one thing that I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving is simply being alive...

Truly stoked for life to be alive...and, thankful for simple things...like walking on the beach with our Chocolate Labs...Miranda and Molly...and, taking in an awesome fall sunset...what we call the "magic hour" here in what's called the "Good Land"...with a sliver of a new moon in the early evening sky as our "lucky stars" start to come out...

Something so beautiful and so simple is now forever denied for our departed 58 angels that first October Sunday in that desert city of Las Vegas...we'll never drink those 58 angels off of our minds...but, we will always honor them at Happy Hour...with a toast to them and the 58 empty barstools they left behind...cheers...
