POTD: Moroccan Sunrise

Photo of the Day: Moroccan Sunrise

I’ve been sitting on my photos from Morocco for a while now, but I had a good reason. I was in a group slideshow exhibition last week and I wanted to unveil the images there, but now that it’s over, I’m free to show them off a bit.

This particular picture is a sunrise scene shot in the dunes near Zagora. I took an overnight trip to the edge of the dunes where you can get a taste of the Moroccan desert if you’re short on time. Earlier that week, I had visited the impressive dunes of Erg Chebbi that happen to reside at the paper edge of the Sahara, so this sandy trek near Zagora wasn’t quite as impressive as it could have been had I not previously visited larger dunes.

Nevertheless, it made for some fun scenes to capture like this shot of the sun rising over the mountains while our guides searched for stray tourists who had wandered into the dunes in the hopes of having a slightly more authentic desert experience.
