Morocco: A Photo Tour

Ask any photographer – Morocco is undoubtedly one of the world's most photogenic locations. Australian Moroccan Meanderings is one blogger who chose to substitute photos for words this week, telling us:

Since I have had some positive responses about the photographs on this blog, I thought I would include a few others that give a snapshot of Morocco.

The photo above is of the Dades Gorge, in the southeast of the country. But not only the gorges are gorgeous! Blogger Wakha shares a spectacular photograph from Essaouira along with a fitting quote:

The Moroccan sky is a common object of photographers, as already shown. The Morocco Report shows us another facet of Morocco's clear skies, this time farther north in the city of Meknes.

But it isn't only the Moroccan sky that tantalizes – certain objets d'art can do the same, particularly rugs, which Morocco is known for. Maryam of My Marrakesh
shows us some of Morocco's multicolored treasures:

The last photo this week takes us to the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music, which is about to wrap up. Blogger Long Way Home
shared a smattering of photos from the festival, which turned out to be a truly multicultural event this year. My favorite is of a group performing Gregorian chants:
