The last sunset of 2007

The last sunset of 2007
We decided to catch the cable car up Table Mountain last night to watch the last sunset of 2007 from the summit. We were lucky enough to catch the last car up before the sun actually set, and although I've been in the cable car a few times, this was by far the most spectacular trip yet.

I hope to never forget the moment at which the cable car rose over the last rocky outcrop, revealing the setting sun and spilling magical orange light over us and the rocks below. What a fantastic end to 2007!

Happy New Year to all of you - we're looking forward to an awesome 2008, and trust that you are too.

Clockwise, from the top left: the sun setting over Camps Bay; the lights of the city, stretching out to Blouberg and beyond; looking north-east over the city bowl, just after the sun had set; three cable cars from years gone by, no longer in use.
