The sun sets on March 31st behind the old West Street station pier at Gravesend. The pier was part of a platform at the old Gravesend West railway station that jutted out on to the river.

About 10 hours later, the sky is full of pretty hues of pink, orange and blue over Tilbury shortly before the sun rises.
