This flowering Quiver Tree, locally known as a Kokerboom just popped up in my memories, 1 year ago today! 😀 Quite possibly the image I’m most proud of so far on this feed. Probably because it’s the biggest plant I’ve photographed which wasn’t easy!! But also because my Mom and I took a 4 hour drive to Vanrhysdorp to photograph it, I wasn’t well prepared at all and in the end the owner of the plant and my mom were my 2 guerrilla style assistants...We almost didn’t have enough black cloth and it was sunset, but we just managed to capture it. 🌅 🤘🏾😬🤓 a cherished memory I’ll never forget 😎 This particular image was taken on iPhone, but I took the exact same image also on a 5D markIIII , so this was my first ever large print. (Visit my story highlights to see it framed) You may have noticed it’s also my profile pic. It is known as ‘choje’ to the indigenous San people, it’s current scientific name is Aloidendron dichotomum, it was formerly known as Aloe dichotoma. The quiver tree or kokerboom, is a tall, branching species of succulent plant, indigenous to Southern Africa, specifically in the Northern Cape region of South Africa, and parts of Southern Namibia.
