The main runway is EAST/WEST, and I don't ever remember anything landing on the north-south in all the time I have spent there. The Military occupies approximately 3/4's of the property with the civilian airterminals on the north-west side. So the sun will stay south of the main runway (on base side). The mountains are to the east, so I doubt you will get a shot with them in the sunset.
If you go, be careful "exploring" around some of the areas around there. Crime is high, many distressed housing areas, and some of the indians and hispanics that live in them would love to see what is in your wallet. Prostitution is fairly prominent as well, and arrests are frequent.
I had the pleasure of spending some time with the 58th SOW (Special Operations Wing). They have some very unique (but nightmarish as I was an electrician) aircraft there such as the MH53J, TH-53A Pave Low, MH/HH-60G Pave Hawk, MC-130P Combat Shadow, MC-130H Combat Talon II, and one of my personal favorites... the CV-22. Many of those will only fly at night, but you just might catch a glimpse during the day.
