A night of Fire

The fire continued to rage through the night.  Fortunately there was no wind so it spread slowly eastwards.  I took a few photographs during the night from our bedroom and by this morning most of the mountain was a blackened hulk.  The wind has picked up and the fire will no doubt continue for quite a while; certainly until it reaches the smaller vegetation in a previously burnt section of the mountain.

    Thank you for the photos of the Fernkloof fire.
    Botanically this fire will bring us joy but hopefully we have not lost too many of our precious mammals.
