Close to Boulmane du Dades, in the southern Morocco, one can visit the impressive Dades gorges.
We chose the bad day to go through them. We have been told it hadn't rain for the past eight years. In our taxi, we spent several hours hoping we would not collide with the truck passing by, or fall aside the road for sometimes we could see some deep nasty holes. Quite a funny experience.
Cropped, USM applied.

Scary shot. Ce camion arrive droit sur vous ! J'aime bien voir un coin du visage du conducteur et de son volant. Sympathique...

image originale dans le cadrage et que j'aime pour son ambiance
celà rappelle des voyages, des routes de galère à chacun de nous (ce n'était peut-être pas le cas ici d'ailleurs)
bonne idée que tu as eu de déclencher à ce moment Steven
pas toujours besoin d'une belle lumière pour faire une bonne photo...

I like this image - good idea for this shot to be framed like a cinema screen (like the idea very much!).
Car's dashboard from below and the roof from above make an interesting frame for the 'main' picture.
Looks as it was raining cats and dogs that day and driving conditions were really bad.
The wheel in the lower left corner and the driver's reflection in the mirror add to already gloomy atmosphere, you created perfectly by cleverly framing this shot.

An interesting yet very challenging scene. There is so much in this one shot - the atmosphere; the droplets on the windscreen; the green graphic; the reflection on the rear mirror and the movement of the hanging decoration. All these are well positioned and beautifully framed by the two bands of black.It must be quite an experience. Excellent shot!! Thanks for the suggestion and critique. All the best.

Well done, nice lighting - looks like a scene from a film. The whole comosition is interesting. As a side, i like how the rear view mirror of the car you were in is attached in the same location that it would be in the truck the car is facing - a nice duality.
