#madeinEarthHour [37 of 60] The beautiful city of Cape Town in South Africa was awarded Global Earth Hour Capital 2014 by WWF’s Earth Hour City Challenge! Register at http://bit.ly/1m0P3XR for updates on the Earth Hour City Challenge in 2015. 

The city has taken bold steps towards transitioning its energy system away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy with its roll out of a solar water heating program and is recognised for its ambition and pioneering actions to combat climate change. 

Community engagement on sustainability issues and strong progress with energy efficiency also helped Cape Town win the title. Over 160 cities from 14 countries joined the competition, more than double the participation from last year. 

The City Challenge also awarded the cities of Khunan, Thailand and Medellin, Colombia for its social media campaign We Love Cities. Over 300,000 votes were received from people around the world to select their most loveable of 33 finalist cities and also send in their suggestions online of how to make them more sustainable.

A Tale of Two Sunsets. (Castelejo, Portugal)
Seven of Eleven: The First Sunset

...and by the end of day 1 of my journey through Castelejo, it was time for sundown!

Just a little before that (before the sun outline got warped by the haze near the horizon), its intense glow bathed the beach and created those long shadows and orange cast we all know and love.

Composing to get a nice foreground and balanced background, with the sun still in its round shape, I got this one.

The image
Digital blend, so that I could capture all the detail in the scene with the sun on the frame (and show what I was seeing on location with my eyes).

I must say that I do rather like the end result on this one. Enjoy ;)

The tech stuff
Canon 7D + Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM @ 15mm
Exposure: 1/25s (base shot)
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 100

Disclaimer: it seems that Google is having a real hard time making the G+ platform something of "good use." Particularly so for photographers. Within the multitude of bugs that plague the platform at present, one of the most harrowing is the duplication of the post images by Google. Should you see this image duplicated on your stream - other than from a community post or otherwise normal re-share - please understand that is a G+ bug, and not my own replication of the post. This message will remain on all my posts until the issue is clearly solved by Google.
