Hi everyone,

I spent a week in Marrakech recently and was presented with a huge amount of photographic opportunities... I tried to make the most of them, so here are some impressions of my trip.

Saadite Tombs:

The Souks (Market):
(3):
Image
(4) (Spices):
Image
(5):
Image
(6):

(7) (sleeping salesman - they make all kinds of things out of car tires!):
Image
Bahia Palace:
(8):

And, of course, the omnipresent Mint tea ;-)
(9):

I'm very happy with how well my Pentax K100D performed on this trip, although changing lenses did get a bit tedious at times (I have the Double zoom kit, 18-55 and 50-200mm).

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

Martin

When I first saw your name I thought you were a Leica-shooter! :) Great images though, you've captured some really nice colours!

Great shots!! I'm particularly like the depth of field in 3 and 5.8)

I'm going to respectfully disagree with Markh. I think a smaller aperture in shot three to get all of the merchandise in focus would have made the shot a little better. That said, shot five is awesome, and even shot three is nice as is. And look at those colors! Well done!

Hi Martin,

Really great pics! I can only imagine Marrakech must be a treasure trove for photographers and you got yourself a piece of that treasure :)

Great pictures. I love the age in the shoe salesman's face. Many years of selling his wares in the hot Marrakech streets.
