In the fourth week following the fire Heiner took some great photos. The bright red flowers of Haemanthus and Brunsvigia were appearing all over the landscape. Many of these plants had been smothered by old, dense fynbos prior to the fire and were making there first flowering appearance in many years. below is great shot of a single Haemanthus sanguineus appearing at the base of huge burnt out Leucadendron coniferum (dune conebush) skeletons.
In open sandy areas we came across groups of Haemanthus at sites where we had never before seen them.
This is a close-up of an Brunvigia orientalis (candelabra flower) taken with early morning dew.
