In my (limited) landscape photography experience, I’ve always found that mountain sunrises or sunsets were the hardest to get right, because the contrast between the fiery sky (when you’re lucky) and the unlit mountain is so harsh. Sometimes though, it works as I think is the case here.
The villages of the Upper Atlas mountains in Southerm Morocco look like they simply should not be able to cling to the near vertical rock surface. And yet they do, and people live there. One of the most stunning sights in my life…
There’s an impredictability about sunsets. You never know what it’s going to give. I certainly never expected that mad fire over the Atlas mountains in Morrocco!
