My favourite part of the holiday in Morocco was a trip in the High Atlas range, the view was amazing.

In the mountains, I visited a few villages. One of them is an old fortified city called AΓ―t Benhaddou, where films like e.g. Gladiator and Kundun were filmed.

  2. Calee, those colors are warm and wonderful in the first picture, and the second one intrigues me and makes me want to explore and investigate all those buildings… It is a completely different world there. Nicely captured!

    • They did go on and on, almost as far as the eye could reach. Standing there, the mountains behind me looked completely different, they were much higher and covered in snow. Impressive.
