Smoke...

The Welcome Dover stove, above, kept the Kaapsehoop fire station tower claustrophobically hot on Sunday afternoon, while the forester had his hands full on the telephone and radio tracking the fast-moving fire raging through the forests in the valley below. The satellite image shows the smoke from the fires being swept eastwards by the wind.
 
The photo was taken by Wynand Kemp; he also forwarded me the satellite image.

I'm so thankful that the Northern Cape is blessed with little to no fires during the dry, late-winter months. The damage caused by these fires goes beyond what money or insurance can replace.
