atlas

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 Aït Benhaddou, where films like e.g. Gladiator and Kundun were filmed.

sunspot

A man in the medina (old fortified city) of Marrakech. I’m not good at street photography or portraits, so -again- happy with the zoom on the SX50.

storks

I didn’t know it before I went, but Marrakech is full of storks! And apparently the stork is a holy bird in Marrakech, so disturbing one could land you in prison. Well, I didn’t go near them, I only took pictures using the good zoom on my SX50.
