I fell in love with this spot of the village, this was my second trip back as when I looked back at my photos of the previous day, I felt that my crop was a little too tight at the base of the frame. I feel much happier with the second attempt and luckily that the light was just as good for my second visit!

I could have stayed here for hours…

I found Chaouen really inspiring, but I also found it extremely tricky to photograph – who knew that the colour blue could be so difficult to capture – it was hard not to make it look like as though I’d set an incorrect white balance.

Chaouen, Morocco.

    Just gorgeous!! Love the soft blues, texture and light … lovely feel :)))

  • I think this the closest I’ve come photographically to giving a sense of what Chaueon was like. Thank you for your kind comments.
