Kokerboom architecture

One of the delightful sights in Richtersveld National Park is the contrast between the stark desert scenery and a kokerboom tree. These are also known as tree aloes - one of several different species.

I photographed this particular specimen at Kokerboomkloof campground, where we camped for two nights. I love the symmetry of the architecture for the stems of this tree. It's a good way to take advantage of the available light.
