Photographer's Note

Through this picture, I wanted to stress on the beauty of a place I already offered to you : the Aït Benhadou Ksar.

This shot is a closer version of the central part of this one.

Like already said, the Kasbah of these Ksour tend to be abandoned today as this traditional way of living is quite remote from the standard of living people expect nowadays. Nevertheless, I saw that few of them were still maintained by local family. I was told there were about half a dozen left in the Ksar itself. In this very Kasbah on the right, you can notice that the owner made a great job by perfectly maintaining the clay structure and its traditional ornaments on the upper part. To help the owner, you may visit his wonderful house for as little as 0.2 EUR… You have access to the traditional elements of such a Kasbah : the granary, the clay oven, the narrow stairs, the warehouse, the roof…

I tried to correct the amber tones due to the UV filter as suggested before but that was not easy. I guess I should offset it at sunrise…

********************

I recropped this version and tried to add more clarity/saturation to better convey the way the light can look like in the Southern Morocco.
