This photo was taken as my plane taxied away from its gate at Miami International Airport on its way to Quito, Ecuador. It was the perfect time to take off. Sunset was just starting, and it became more intense over Cuba before adjusting itself into bands of saturated yellow, orange and blue over the open ocean. By the time we got to Quito, it was dark outside and the lights of the city were there to greet us. Interesting fact about the Miami airport: there were no Starbucks or McDonald's, at least not in my terminal. Impressive.
