Morocco travel photos

For the Travel Photography Inspiration Project at DPS on Morocco, I sent in some photos from my 2010 trip.

Some families still live in this ancient fortified city in Morocco. Parts of the Russell Crowe film Gladiator were filmed here.

Despite daytime temperatures reaching 130 degrees Fahrenheit, an evening camel caravan into the Sahara was comfortable. The setting sun made beautiful, long shadows and a wide range of colors on the sands.

You never know what you’ll see when you turn a corner in the narrow, crowded alleys of the Fes medina.

Locals in this amazing Marrakech square were very aggressive toward tourists with cameras. Don’t take a picture without permission, and certainly don’t touch a monkey unless you want to pay a lot of money!

    Those photos are gorgeous! Wow, can a place be any more night and day different from here in the States? I get culture shock just looking at the pictures. (Thank God I don’t run into sheep heads on a table when I go to the local supermarket.)
