Photographer's Note

The Quiver tree forest outside Keetmanshoop is a mesmerising place. Nowhere else in the world do these trees grow in such abundance. The Bushmen used these trees to carve out quivers for their arrows, from there the name. The trees in this photo are hundreds of years old.
There is nothing like dusk in the desert.
