Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm L lens.
Quiver Trees (Aloe dichotoma), at sunset, taken at the very remote and spectacular Fish River Canyon, Namibia, Africa. It is the second largest canyon in the world and the largest in Africa.

Quiver Trees, known as Choje to the indigenous San people, gets its name from the their practice of hollowing out the tubular branches of Aloe dichotoma to form quivers for their arrows
