The Quiver Tree Forest (Kokerboom Woud in Afrikaans) is a forest and a well-known tourist attraction of southern Namibia. It is located about 14 km north of Keetmanshoop.
It comprises about 250 specimens of Aloe Dichotoma, a species of aloe that is also locally known as "quiver tree" because bushmen use its branches to make quivers. The forest is spontaneous; the tallest quiver trees are two to three centuries old. The forest was declared a national monument of Namibia.

Ah, a daytime shot of this wood. The trees are as pretty in full light as they are at night. Incredibly sharpness and great detail in the bark and even the shadows; nice range of light. Well-composed as well, with points of interest both foreground and background. Thanks.
