After the fire

The mountains after the burn
This morning I took a walk into the mountains not far from my home in Hermanus. I decided to take a few pictures for the blog and then saw a small gorge that had been spared by the flames. I headed into the gorge and found a waterfall cascading over a vertical face. There was much plant growth on this face so I decided to look for any Disa uniflora. I found one which was just about to flower. I had to balance precariously to take the picture (thank goodness for zoom!). It was really good to see some life amidst the destruction.
