Earth Hour 2014 in Lisbon – by Miguel Claro from Miguel Claro on Vimeo.

For the first time Lisbon was participating of the international event, shutting down the lights, as a symbolic act, of some of the main monuments, buildings and structures, as the great statue Christ the King and the 25 April bidge across the Tagus River, as we can see in the time lapse sequence captured in the south edge of Lisbon, from Almada. Heart Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet, and is organised by WWF. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.

Captured with 2 Canon cameras (50D and 60Da) and 2 Great Vixen Polarie travel mounts.
