Twilight Illumination

Twilight Illumination

Quiver Tree Forest, Keetmanshoop, Namibia

Heavy twilight skies to the west illuminate the Quiver trees and atmosphere in soft warm hues, whilst an almost full moon rises to the east and stars begin to appear. A long exposure of 30 seconds was needed to render a good exposure of the twilight scene helped on by the moon light from above. I was surprised by the power of the western twilight on the base of the Quiver trees as it was quite dark, but helped enrich the already striking colours of the trees.
