Quiver Tree, Namib Desert

Quiver Tree, Namib Desert

The quiver tree is an important plant of the Namib Desert to the San people.  They used the hollowed out branches to construct quivers for their arrows.  The trees we observed were often solitary.  I struggled with this composition, wanting to capture some detail in the desert beyond.
