Photos: Morocco, Part 2

Other galleries:


Morocco’s visuals are too stunning to be contained by one gallery, so I’ve split my images into two sections. Welcome to part 2. This page includes (among others) images from Fez/Fes, Chefchaouen, Casablanca and Meknes.

If you haven’t already, make sure you check out Part 1 of my Morocco images here. And for even more images from Morocco, have a look at my sandscapes from Zagora.

    Darby–

    Just a note to say how much I enjoyed looking at your photos and want a fine job you have done in capturing life. Your descriptive captions are some of the best I have seen and are very helpful.

    I have been fortunate to travel many places over the world and have taken many photos for strictly my own use, enjoyment, and memories of places I have traveled.

    I am traveling to Morocco in a couple of weeks for about three weeks. As I have looked at various web sites of images, I find myself wondering, WHY did I not do this before now? I will not have time to go to Anchour on this trip, but I may have to return to Morocco just to do that.

    I love waterfalls …and see that you have Plitvice Lakes listed in your portfolio. We spent three days at Plitvice Lakes last summer. I was surprised to find there were no DVD’s or books with photos for all seasons. (I saw a photo of Plitvice Lakes, but the location was not identified. However, as soon as I saw the photo, I said, “I want to go there!” That is what drove my trip to Croatia –which included a WONDERFUL small boat cruise (36 passengers, but only 16 on this trip) thru the Croatia Archipelago this was thru Kompass (Croatia) – Gate 1 Travel (USA)

    Having just returned from China, I recommend that trip to you –especially a cruise up the Yangtze River thru the Three Gorges AND the smaller off-shoot gorges –Goddess Stream,, Shen Nong Stream, Lesser Gorges. My weather was not conducive to photography, but I managed to get some passable photos in spite of the weather –rain, fog, smog. I will be glad to share some images thru Google+ with you if you desire –just because you did such a fine job on the Morocco photos I have just enjoyed. Just send me an email if you are interested.

    I also recommend Peru –especially Machu Picchu

    And the South Island of New Zealand is INCREDIBLE. (Unfortunately, my New Zealand images are all on slides which have not been digitized.)

    I will be interested in looking thru your photo sites since I have traveled to many of the places you list.

    All the Best
