Flood lights on Table Mountain

The City of Cape Town municipality sometimes turns on bright, coloured flood lights at night that light up Table Mountain. Nowadays it is only done on special occasions to conserve energy, but when I was a child the lights used to be turned on almost every night, if I remember correctly.

A while ago I happened to be in the Green Room Gardens apartment when the lights were on, and I was ready with camera in hand to commit it to photographic memory. The cloudy sky made the scene all the more spectacular.
