Quiver Tree Forest, Namibia

May 28th, 2014, 10pm

In the last few years, there’s have been several photos that I’ve really wanted to capture for myself. A number of these have actually been in Namibia and one of them was capturing the amazing-looking quiver trees (Kokerbooms) under the Milky Way.

This was my fourth shooting location in Namibia, but one of my favourites. Sadly, the next place after this was about an 8 hours drive away in the very north of the country.

This was my first trip to Namibia and I was so impressed by not only the country’s landscapes, but also the people living there. I definitely want to go back again in the future and get some parts of the country that I missed this time.

Has anyone else ever been? If so, let me know what you thought!

Hopefully in the next few weeks, I’ll have processed some more shots from Namibia, including some pretty special ones from Deadvlei (dead trees in the desert) and Kolmanskop (a German mining town buried by the sand).

Speaking of this town, Instagram recently shared my iPhone shot of Kolmanskop, so that was a very nice surprise when I was on my trip! Feel free to follow me to keep up to date with holiday snaps, assuming you can’t wait for my Hi.co posts ;)

Also, the quality of this photo has been somewhat mashed up, so please have a look at a better quality version on Flickr or 500px, thanks!

For anyone interested in the more technical side of things, this is one exposure and not a composite, taken with a Nikon D800 and 14-24mm lens.

Anyway, I hope you like this photo!
