This photo was taken in Marrakech’s thriving and chaotic marketplace. I was struck by the beautiful light and textures of this shot.

    Beautiful image- great lamps and color. Nice lighting here.

  • Thanks Rodeorose – I fell in love with all the beautiful lamps in the Marrakech bazaar – pity about the limited backpack space!

    I like this pic, it’s so moody and colourful (but not too much). There are many pics of these lamps, but yours separates from them because of the composition. It’s beautiful, that they are getting bigger to the top towards the right.
    (I wanted to make shots of these lamps in Fès, but I caught a bad illness and didn’t see anything of that town)

  • Thank you so much for your comment RE. Sorry to hear you missed out on getting to properly explore Fes. Hopefully one day you will get the chance to return to Morocco…
