Morocco: A Photo Tour

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Morocco, Arts & Culture, Music, Photography

Ask any photographer – Morocco is undoubtedly one of the world's most photogenic locations. Australian Moroccan Meanderings [1] 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 [3], in the southeast of the country. But not only the gorges are gorgeous! Blogger Wakha [4] 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 [6] 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 [9], 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:
