Saving power and the earth – Flickr pic of the day

This photograph was taken on Earth Hour 2009 by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group member Miriam Mannak.

Says Miriam, "Cape Town, South Africa's mother city, was one of the participants during earth hour. For the occasion, hundreds of people gathered on Table Mountain road - which leads to the foot of the famous, flat topped mountain. For the occasion, Cape Town's (then mayor) Helen Zille switched off the spotlights that usually light up the landmark. The result - a star kissed mountain!"

This year the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway will be switching off all the lights around Table Mountain, except for emergency lights, and the City of Cape Town will also be switching off the spot lights on Table Mountain and in its own buildings for one hour in support of Earth Hour 2012.

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
