Seems like one of the things we enjoy about being on the road and out of doors, is watching the sunrise and set. I’ll bet it is the same with a lot of folks. We try to capture the wonderful moment on film, from time to time, and bet that others do too. Lets see some of those great sunrise / sunset photos from your travels !
Jug Fishing Sunset Lake Greeson, Arkansas 2006. A front was coming out of the North West that evening and the line of clouds caused the sun’s rays to fan out beautifly. The storm scattered the jugs all over the place, but we had a good catch.

What a wonderful picture. Can’t wait to see others, but you’ve set the bar pretty high.

Yeah, I heard about the two old Arkansas boys walking down Main Street. The first one walked into a bar. The second one ducked.
Sorry, but you started it.May 12, 2008 at 5:23 pm #13892
Rotten, Tom, You’re just plain ol’ roten ! A man after my own heart !
Sunrise video in April of 2006. Yep we’re a’ jug fishin’ again ! This ten second video catches the sun just it peeks over the horizon and sprays a fan of color over our jug fishing world !
The engine in "HARM’S WEIGH" is idling and Butcherknife is telling me "Hey ! Let’s get in gear ! "
Just a few brief seconds later I shot this video, and the light had just totally changed.
By now Butcherknife is saying, "alright now, enough already, let’s go get them fish ! "

Good one, andrew, where was it taken ?May 13, 2008 at 2:04 am #13898
Good one, andrew, where was it taken ?
It was taken on the road, on the way home from Hackberry. I am not sure if it was on Route 66 or on I40, but somewhere there.
I went through some of my other sunset pics and posted a few themMay 13, 2008 at 11:30 am #13905
Wow Andrew, very nice sunset photos! This one was taken after Chuck and I had a perfect day, picnic at Indian Pass where about 9 dolphin were playing in the pass between the mainland and St Vincent’s Island. We had a great time riding on the beach and me just showing him my neck of the woods from Cape San Blas, FL to Eastpoint, FL. On the way home, I noticed this sunset in my rear view mirror…. pulled over at 10 mile road and got one quick shot before the mosquitos ate us alive! Enjoy. Geri

We went back to Hackberry again, although it is getting a bit warm during the day, we are going to have to either stay home and swim in the pool, bring more gas for the generator, run the AC and hide inside during the day or find another place to camp where it is cooler.
The nights are beautiful though!June 6, 2008 at 10:20 pm #14065
Having backed our Oliver a half mile into a winding, abandoned magnesium mine in Vesuvius, VA, we spotted a glimmer of light from a crevice about 12 feet above. Using the pole for the awning, I was able to remote click a photo of this sunset in the desolate slag above.
This is only the beginning. More later ….

Ok, ok, I should have known you boondockers would recognize that as a NASA shot of a sunset on Mars. Sorry, but I get so caught up in all your adventures, I just want to play too. Mama taught me better …

Dog gone it Tom ! Ya’ had me convinced. Cool photo though. Now wouldn’t that be a nifty boondocking/camping trip !
