This photo is to glorify Allah/God, The Almighty. I had planned a shoot near sunset to capture the last light on these aloes. By the time I walked 500 meters from where my wife had dropped me, and reached the spot, the last light on the aloes disappeared. I saw more aloes 600 meters away and I started running towards them. I said, "God please I want to capture it". By the time I reached there, the light was gone. I said to myself, "The moon, the stars and the sun have their own timing and they appear and disappear as per God's will and system, I should have come a bit earlier".

I am not sure when will I get a chance again to capture aloes, but I hope and pray to have them when the are in full bloom.

Taken at Gamkaskloof, The Hell in Western Cape.
