Mississippi River sunset from a Grand Van

I took this photo from a C208B Grand Caravan while ferrying it from Houston Texas to Atlanta Georgia.  I was trying to get the sunset over the Mississippi River... key word was "trying " lol  

That flight was boring and exciting at the same time.  It can get very boring flying by yourself for many hours.  However it was also exciting knowing that I was flying a beautiful $2 million dollar aircraft by myself halfway across the country into unfamiliar airspace at night time with cloud activity in the forecast.  

Happily I can tell you that the flight ended successfully and uneventfully.  After tucking her away in the hangar for the night, I checked into the local Hilton and ordered room service paid for by the client.... pilot perks!
