Quiver tree or kokerboom (Aloe dichotoma) and Milky Way, Karas Region, Namibia

Quiver trees, members of the succulent aloe family, are particularly well adapted to surviving in the harsh conditions of Namibia’s southern desert. The plant stores water in its trunk and has spongy wood. In remote desert skies, stars seem to shine brighter than anywhere else. Often their collective light is so bright that your body will cast a shadow on moonless nights.  I have used a small red flashlight to light detail on the otherwise silhouetted tree.
