The Slangkop Lighthouse – Flickr pic of the day


This image of the Slangkop Lighthouse was captured by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group member Lyn, aka Dreamcatcher photos.

One of Kommetjie's top attraction is the tallest cast-iron lighthouse on the South African coast, the white Slangkop (“snake head” in Afrikaans) Lighthouse, which stands approximately 30m (98ft) high and is made entirely from steel. Slangkop Lighthouse has been operational since March 4, 1919 and has a rotating electric light that gives four flashes every 30 seconds.

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!
