Aloe plant silhouette on the Karoo plain.

This is a photo I took in South Africa near a small town Vanderkloof. It was late afternoon when I saw this beautiful scene and I knew I had to photograph it. This aloe plant is indeganous to South Africa and is truely spectacular. They always say Africa has the best and most stunning sunsets, and this scene just explained that to me. This was a scene and a photo I will never forget. [Photo taken on 24 August 2016]
