No filter needed for Wednesday night’s fiery sunset

Sunset over Victoria sets the sky on fire

Wednesday night’s sunset over the south Island lit up the evening sky and came as somewhat of a surprise on an otherwise blase day. The fiery sky lightened the mood on a day where many conversations swirled around mental health.

This winter sunset seemed to commemorate the first month of 2019 as it comes to a close today.
