During my travels across southern Africa, I have grown very fond of the arid lands of the south-west, and especially the life that thrives in these areas.
The Quiver Tree (Aloe dichotoma), not technically a tree but a type of branching Aloe, grabbed my attention from the first time I saw them in person back in the Richtersveld many years ago. From then I have always had a sort of photographic love affair with them. Below are 10 of my favourite photographs captured of these beautiful Aloes. The bulk of the images are from Namibia but include some from the Richtersveld National Park and Augrabies Falls National Park in South Africa. Please enjoy.
