Namib Desert Quiver Tree Limited Edition Wall Art: Rainbow Trees
When I revisited this small group of quiver trees after almost 20 years I found them in rain rather than under a brilliant blue sky. Hence the name for this unusual print – Rainbow Trees.
The quiver tree is my favourite Namibian plant. It is actually an aloe (Aloe dichotoma), a succulent, not a tree. It is indigenous to the Northern Cape region of South Africa and parts of Southern Namibia. The branches were used by bushmen (san) as quivers for their arrows.
I have revisited this group of quiver trees several times since 1995. When I discovered this place first I photographed the plants at sunset with a rising full moon. I timed my last visit a few years back so I would be there once again at full moon. But I couldn’t have met a more contrasty condition. Black storm clouds were moving in and it began raining. And to my great fortune a rainbow appeared.
The Rainbow Trees fine art photography print has a limited edition of only 100. Most other fine art photographers have a much higher limited edition number. The lower the number the higher is the value of the print.
