Photographer's Note

The snow-covered peaks of the high Atlas mountains rise over the city of Marrakesh.
The contrast between the semi arid, almost desert like plains of Marrakesh with its palm trees and the impressive snow capped mountains behind the city is indeed impressing and the sight of palm trees and snow in the same picture startles the untrained eye.
While the city of Marrakesh lies at a level of 451m above sea level, the mountains behind have an average hight of over 3000m with the Toubkal being the highest with over 4125m
