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.

Nice contrast between the black trees and the luminous sky. Maybe a little lack of sharpness, or a lost of quality during compression.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Les arbres sont magnifiques en ombres chinoises plantÚs bien droit devant ce magnifique coucher de soleil.

This was certainly a magical place and I remember the feeling when I was there standing amongst those impressive trees. I like your silhouette sunset version as it really shows the shape of these special trees well.
