It’s been a while since I enjoyed a good sunset from Signal Hill:

As the sun dropped below the horizon in the west, the Belt of Venus rose in the east:

Rising Belt of Venus - St. John's

Fifteen minutes after sunset, deep pink clouds extended over the entire city:

Colourful clouds at dusk - St. John's

The crowd on Signal Hill was a peculiar mix of local teenagers and tourists from far away.
