The “Streets of Nuremberg” continue with the road trip through Namibia. After leaving the capital Windhoek, we drove around 500 kilometers down south. First stop in the South of Namibia was Keetmanshoop with its famous Quiver Tree Forest.
This unique piece of nature comprises of about 300 trees of “Aloe dichotoma”, more commonly known as “quiver tree” or kokerboom, because bushmen traditionally used its branches to make quivers. The tallest quiver trees are two to three centuries old.
We arrived at the Quiver Tree Forest in the late afternoon, it is spectacular in the light of the fading day and to photography the tree silhouettes in front of the golden evening sky.
Tomorrow we will head to Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world only behind Arizona’s Grand Canyon. Stay tuned for more of Namibia!
Have a great day!

Thanks, Femke, really appreciate your kind words. All my Namibia posts are on the blog now, here is the link to the last post that includes the link to all episodes 😉 ! Marcus https://streetsofnuremberg.com/2017/10/01/namibia-explored-etosha-wildlife/
Wonderful shots Marcus. I love the perspective in that second one!
Thanks, Amy, really appreciated! I hope you guys are safe from that bad storm coming in! All the best and stay safe! Marcus
Thanks Marcus. We will see minor rain from the storm, but it went right over my family in Naples. They are all safe, which is the most important thing. Their homes appear fine, just lots of cleanup.
Nice pics. Great job.
Thanks, much appreciated! Marcus
Wow these trees are so stunning and what an even more stunning capture. Definitely a must see I hope some day
