"Quiver Trees at Twilight"

One has to step carefully at Orbicule Kop, near Springbok, South Africa. Deadly snakes can be underfoot. I wanted to get these quiver trees or kokerbooms (Aloe dichotoma) after sunset, when they would be silhouetted against a twilight sky. Thankfully, there were no snake bites that evening.
