Quiver Trees by Night
by Florian Breuer
The warm lights of Keetmanshoop contrast with the cool glow of the Milky Way in this 230 degree view of the Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop, Namibia. I find that the glow of the nearby town adds to the overall composition. The foreground is illuminated by starlight (and some light pollution), at the very limit of what the camera can detect.
Equipment: Canon 40D, Tokina 11-16mm, Nodal Ninja 3 panoramic head
Born 1977, I am a Mathematician teaching at Stellenbosch University, South Africa.
I have been taking snapshots since my teens, but have only recently started taking photography more seriously.
