While the sun sets and the Muezzin calls for evening prayer, the famous city of Marrakesh promises an atmosphere of 1001 nights to the adventures traveller, where a bustling street life among the scents of exotic spices compete with the cool gardens of romantic Riads or sumptuous palaces from where one can observe the storks nesting among the rooftops.

Very pleasant travel image taken from a good viewpoint. There is a lot to look at - the architecture, the almost silhouetted palms, the blue mountains in the distance... and of course the nest. In spite of the exotic surroundings, nesting storks invariably remind me of Poland. :)

The architecture here is really beautiful, and such an array of colors in the scene too. I particularly like the effect of the jade green against the bright blue. The whole scene is balanced perfectly with the tower perfectly on thirds and the clump of trees filling the rest of the frame, but still allowing excellent depth. Your note adds intrigue as you speak of 1001 nights.
Very nicely done

A super shot which combines both ancient design, modern technology and natural elements Daniel. A well balanced and interesting image.

A well spotted of this stork on that minaret which is so well juxtapositioned and am sure someone gonna be happy, an attractive scene as the nest looks neatly fit and stable. Wonderful and timely taken of amazing scene and the surrounding detail, and great contrast to the blue background as well. The deep blue sky emphasises the visual impact. Well done, TFS

An exquisite photo of an exotic place. I like how you have balance the nimaret with the grove of palm trees.

Beautiful shot of a wonderful city! I like the pov and the light here, that's the time the city becomes magical. It's a very good composition with the stork at the top of the minaret. It was probably taken from a terrace also.
