I was constantly regaled by beautiful visions of rural life from the speeding bus. Beautiful for me but mundane for the Moroccans, no doubt for them indicative of a hard life. Beautiful for me as scenes like this one reminded me of my beloved, rocky Dalmatia in the days when women came to market from their mountain villages wearing their folk costumes and riding donkeys- sorry, the men rode, the women walked behind usually carrying something heavy.
Anyway, I have many photos taken from the high vantage point inside the moving bus. I couldn't take my eyes away from the abundance of pastoral scenes.I plan to post one or two as we go along.In due time I mastered the art of taking such photos where the reaction time has to be acute as the scene vanishes in the blink of an eye.

This is an excellent capture from a moving vehicle; one that perfectly encapsulates rural life in Morocco. Well framed and nicely presented with very good colours and sharpness.

i pored toga što si izjavio: "In due time I mastered the art of taking such photos....", vidi se da je snimano na brzinu. No to fotografiju čini još zanimljivijom iako tehnički nije sjajna, a kompozicija je "iznuđena".
Potpuno razumem tvoj komantar, i sam sam bolećiv prema sličnim scenama.

Une scčne bien cadrée dans ce vaste paysage au bon rendu naturel des couleurs.

Interesting shot from a moving bus, with little time to compose or frame. The inclusion of the power lines is probably accounted for by the need to shoot fast, but I rather like its presence, as it adds a modern, perhaps ironic counterpoint to the otherwise timeless scene. Good job.

Travelling by bus or by train offers often such a marvellous sights but it's so difficult to capture them well.
Here you succeeded in it, showing us the dry steppe landscape well including a look at the daily life of the locals.
I'm afraid I don't understand the comparison to the life in Dalmatia ...
Best regards, Paul

Hi dear Klaudio,
You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the pastotal rural spectacle some donkeys are walking pleateau in the desert. Although the convenience of civilization does not have anything here, there is rich nature.

Tvoja nota me je bacila u sećanje kada sam kao dete bio vođen na more u Šibeničku Rogoznicu. Na neki crkveni dan tamo se sjatilo mnogo meštana iz okoline u nošnjama i to je bio spektakl. Neko mi je pričao kako je Rogoznica toliko izgrđena od glavnog puta do ostrva da je prilično izgubljeno na šarmu, koji ti ovde takođe pomonješ. Znam da čovek srlja u komfor. A dge će mu duša!
Lep snimak is pokreta i biće to lepa uspomena za Tebe da se prisetiš jednog dana. Puno pozdrava Dado!
