The Candelabra Flower at Dana Bay

Walking along the beach at Dana Bay near Mossel Bay I noticed a couple of Candelabra flowers growing on the hill side next to the beach.  I haven't photographed any of these for a little while so, even though most of them had wilted and dried already, I trudged up the hill and found one that only started flowering. 


  1. Love that angle with the sea in the background.

  2. I've never seen anything like that. From the perspective you show it looks huge. Is it really that big? I like the angle too.

  3. Hello Jonker,

    I hope things are going well with you.

    I have started a website for the identification of insects, reptiles, spiders and all fauna and flora of South Africa and was wondering if you would put a link from your page and Facebook to the website?

    There is no comprehensive site available up to now and I want this to eventually be the biggest we have.

    I am encouraging people to send me their pictures – cropped as much as possible and sized to about 600 x 400 pixels to It will have their name put onto it and added to the database.

    The website address is and if you will contact me at the above address, I will give you an avatar you can use.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you would be willing to help me spread the word and if anyone else would put the link on their page too.

    Best wishes,

  4. This Candelabra flowers is really charming.

  5. It looks awesome and location where it has grown is glorious.
