Sunset

I'm continuing a postcard visit to St Petersburg as I spotted this vivid sunset when I was looking for last week's postcard theme.  You just can't beat sunsets and water.  The view is of St Peter and St Paul Fortress and the bell tower of its cathedral, the oldest church and highest tower in St Peterburg. This 18th Century star fortress is located on Zayochy Island and is the final resting place of many Tsars.  Today the buildings of the St Peter and Paul Fortress are a museum and a popular tourist destination but if one wants to chill out, fatigued having taken in all the history, then at the foot of the fortress walls are sandy beaches.   Views of the fortress and river can be seen here

The colour is really bright! Not the usual view from these places (that I only now from postcards, alas).

I agree! Sunset and water go well together. Thank you for sharing!
