Donkeys are used all over Morocco as a source of transport for people and goods, and it is no different here in the Todra Gorge. The Gorge has up to 300m high rock faces surrounded by a green valleys of palmeries.

Een mooie compositie met het planten aan de rechterkant en de ezel met berijder op 1/3. De combinatie van rood en groen doet het erg goed hier.
Een hele fraaie foto.

Another beautiful daily life shot. Beautiful combination of the red rock and green shrubs. At least this donkey only have to carry one person, I have seen a poor donkey have to carry a whole cart full of miscellaneous goods and people. It seems rather relax and quiet here. One of my future destination, Morocco.

mooie compositie in warme rode tonen en licht.
Het groen rechts brengt een mooi evenwicht in de plaat.

An absolutely wonderful, devastatingly beautiful intense and warm image Wanda after a little break from you. The composition is fabulous

I like the composition. Like the revival of an old memory... The celebration of a world without asphalt. Besides the peaceful athmosphere, I also like the colors, with a good contrast between the vegetation and the red soil. Bravo.

wanda, nice one, looks like something from a movie rather than real life in the 21st century. Great colors and wonderful handling of the light and shadows.

When such an ephemeral scene appears in front of us, it would be easy to forget about any photographic rules and just aiming in direction of the moving subject.
But you have done a great job here, making sure that your subject wouldn't "fly" away, not before framing him properly and opting to offer a glimpse of its surrounding.
The exotic vegetation balance your subject and elevate the appeal of your image. You've caught the turban man in front of a green patch, therefore making him more distinct than if you would have shoot a second later, in front of rock of similar colour.
Now, let the dunkey rides into my favorites.

Hello Wanda. Red rock, a few bushes and a rider. This is a beautiful and nationaltypical motive. You caught it in the best way with your camera. Best regards, Wolfgang.
