Another shot from Skoura within the palm trees area. Lost in a small block of Kasbah, this one was an abandonned one illustrating how fragile these buildings are.
Nevertheless, in the pure morning light, the building had a lot of presence and the reflections in the nearby water made it even more striking.
I lowered my camera as close to the water as possible to increase the surface of the reflection.
I liked the big tree very much. It may be protecting the old, decayed Kasbah from the desert wind...

Another Moroccan destination which you make regret missing. Nic pic though. Good contrast and the colours are great. I am a little uneasy about the comp. It disturbs my eye that the top of the palm have been chopped of. I recognize that you have not sought a symmestric reflection, but perhaps a wider frame would have worked better? This is personal taste though, still an intruiging scene!

Lovely scene Steven. the reflection in still water is superb. my only niggle with this one is that your contrast is too great, there is no detail in the shadows. Was the morning light so harsh?

nice color. and crystal clear reflection. very nice. is this pic croped at all. When I look at it I wish I could see all of the tree in the reflection is the only edit I would make to it. but I like this pic allot. a person im talking to online right now says she would give it two poitns as well if she had an account on trek earth so 4 points.

J'apprécie l'éclairage doux d'un début de matinée.
L'effet mirroir sur l'eau aurait été réussi à 100% sans la présence du reflet de la branche.
Cela pourrait s'arranger si on coupe horizontalement au ras du reflet de la tête du palmier.

A truly beautifull shot. The water is like a mirror, the refelection is so clear.

Vous avez réussi une superbe photo. La lumière est très jolie. On ne peut rêver d'une plus belle réflexion. J'aime beaucoup le ciel que l'on voit à travers l'arbre. Jolies couleurs. Merci.

Fantastic reflection! It's great how you've turned the decay of the house in such a beautiful image!
The photo is really well balanced and the colors are magnificent!
