Tinghir located in south-eastern Morocco, south of the High Atlas and north of the Little Atlas, is part of the region of Ouarzazate.
The name originally referred Tinghir the mountain "IGHIR" which meant the shoulder Tamazight, but it has gradually expanded to bring together all the villages around and give this name to the whole oasis.
Tinghir is a huge oasis stretching about 30 km long and varies in width from a few kilometers upstream and 4 km downstream. The climate of eastern Tinghir arid subtropical regions, i.e. hot, dries winters plus costs, in relation to altitude (1430 meters). There are a few rainy days per year, the largest precipitation occurring in fall and winter.
Tinghir region is wedged between two mountain ranges, stretching over 700 km long, south-west to north-eastern Morocco: High Atlas north climax over 4167m (Adrar Toubkal). Little Atlas to the south which is the Adrar Sarhro continuity. This is called path-South Atlas, which is also the road from Ouarzazate to Imtghren. During the second era, this region has been periodically invaded by the sea, where thick deposits of sediments rich in marine fossils (ammonites are well represented). The uplift of the atlas, mainly during the Tertiary, causing the withdrawal of the sea and the deformation of the strata of rocks (folds, faults). Wind erosion and river eventually shape the desert landscape of limestone and clay. Todgha the river has widened over time these layers of rock, which gave rise to impressive canyons 300m high but only 10m wide in some places. Then the river widens and its banks to develop a green oasis (gardens, palm trees ...) edged radically with the colors red ocher of the desert stone.

πολύ εντυπωσιακή αυτή η όαση με τους φοίνικες να φτάνουν εως το προσκήιο.Το κοκκινωπό χρώμα των βράχων,συνδιάζεται υπέροχα με τ΄άλλα χρώματα της φωτογραφίας δημιουργώντας ένα καταπληκτικό περιβάλλον.
Πολυεπίπεδη φωτογραφία που δείχνει με λεπτομέρειες όλη την ομορφιά του τοπίου.

Des images qui font voyager avec plaisir. Je découvre et admire le paysage étonnant.
Félicitations pour le choix du cadrage, celui-ci est parfait pour nous plonger dans un monde merveilleux.
jusninasirun (17152) 2012-01-29 1:07
This is an amazing capture and love the contrast and details in this composition. The hanging white cloud is a real winner.
lousat (67057) 2012-01-29 1:09

Royaldevon (23402) 2012-01-29 1:15
Good Morning Danos,
Your shot captures the environment and the character of this North African location beautifully. The trees, the mud buildings, the sandstone hills take the viewer across the frame with their contrasting horizontal layers. The strong, blue sky, is perfect backcloth.
Have a lovely Sunday,
krzychu30 (14346) 2012-01-29 1:58
what a perfectly composed picture.The green,lush vegetation,red mountains and buildings and deep blue sky create very nice layers.I like this strong color contrast between them.Eye-catching scene and so colorful.
Have a nice sunday
dkmurphys (44082) 2012-01-29 2:01

I like colors and sharpness.
patdeph (35744) 2012-01-29 3:28
this landscape is incredible, really magnificent, I love the greeness of the oasis, contrasting with the red mountains.I habe been there 30 years ago, and when I see such picture, Iwould like to go there one more time.
jmdias (49653) 2012-01-29 3:41
a beautiful view of the village and the strips of palm trees, houses and mountains. nice job.
jhm (130620) 2012-01-29 3:50
Nice three parts image, in foreground the green trees, middle the village in background the lovely colors of the mountains
Good captured place and scenery.
Soft colors and perfect sharpness and clarity.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
jacquest (17531) 2012-01-29 4:01
The three part image is well done and the contrast of the three different colrs is eye catching with goog deepness. The colors are well rendered and the sharpness is very good.
pierrefonds (52564) 2012-01-29 5:15
The distance between the palm trees and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the buildings and houses. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
Yiannis84 (2824) 2012-01-29 5:33
Γεια σου Δανός..
Όσο βλέπω εικόνες από το όμορφο Tinghir τόσο πιο πολύ στεναχωριέμαι !! Και αυτό διότι πέρασα από εκεί αλλά για λόγους χρόνου δεν μπόρεσα να τα επισκεφτώ!! πρέπει να είναι ενα εκπληκτκό μέρος με πολύ όμορφα χρώματα τόσο από την όαση όσο και από την αρχιτεκτονική που έχει ..πολύ όμορφη φωτογραφία...τα συγχαρητήρια μου
ikeharel (46944) 2012-01-29 6:57
Amazing sight, Danos.
The desert town along the Oasis with palm-trees, on red/brown soil with excelent contrast.
Dicided into 3 layeres on image:green FG, desert and sky in blue.
Fabulous taken photo.
DjoleE_ (0) 2012-01-29 8:35
Beautiful photos, I have seen similar works
but this you is amazing.
Excellent quality, color and sharpness.
bertolucci (13356) 2012-01-29 9:42
This is beautiful composition, full of engaging local detail and colours. The horizontal layers and the different type of textures that are there also makes it a very fine graphism.
Fabulous work and a great add to your Morocco series!
Have a nice evening,
cornejo (24573) 2012-01-29 11:15

josepmarin (57065) 2012-01-29 12:51
in this photo you show us the image that we have in our minds when we think about an oasis.
You have created a nice composition by means of an effective framing, in which you have included the architecture of the village, perfectly integrated with the landscape of the desert, and the palms in foreground, in an excellent graphical and chromatic contrast.
adores (32148) 2012-01-29 17:22
I see you still have some from Morocco to post:)!
Very good pov!The composition is layers is very good and the colours also!I really like that beautiful white cloud in the blue sky.The South of Morocco is a magnificent region!
Sonata11 (31881) 2012-01-29 21:52
Awesome !!! this beautiful scenery is wonderfully captured. Beautiful light, colors, sharpness, clarity, exposure, contrast and nice pov and dof as well, are wonderfully manage. I like it this presentation of this marvelous view. It's a very beautiful. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice day.
vasilpro (40685) 2012-01-29 23:43
Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πολύ όμορφη η εναλλαγή του πράσινου και του καφέ, της όασης και της ερήμου, πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα τοποθεσία και πόλη που ξεφεύγει από αυτά που έχουν συνηθίσει τα μάτια μας, ωραία χρώματα και σύνθεση κάδρου.
Καλή βδομάδα, Βασίλης.
bayno (18338) 2012-01-30 4:04
many more surprises for us on your trip to Morocco, this is wonderful, it's strange to think how he can live with all that green in a land so arid, the sky is fantastic and beautiful contrast between the three colors, excellent shot, ragards, Valter
kato (10563) 2012-01-30 4:10
You're capturing well this scape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see two mountain ranges with brown color, the colny which spreads in the foot of a mountain and oasis with greenery. It's interesting that the wall of house is same with mountain color, too.
sacimar (25971) 2012-01-30 4:48
this is a good image, I like the three lines of colors we can see here, the palm area is impressive, you chose a good point of view,
mauro61 (52623) 2012-01-30 4:53
tutto il fascino di questi panorami nel tuo scatto con una buona divisione tra terra e cielo.
Ottima la saturazione che rende al meglio l'immagine con l'oasi di palme in FG,
Budapestman (82620) 2012-01-30 6:58
great view, the composition is very spectacular, the colours and lights are splendid, the POV is effective, romantic atmosphere, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!
mkamionka (28031) 2012-01-30 8:38
wonderful view. Fantastic composition, you captured several layers here each with different pattern and color: Blue sky, red earth and town and green oasis.
I like the cloud which makes a nice contribution here.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2012-01-30 8:54
The interesting photo, divided into three bands of color is nice, sharp and deep. I like the harmony of colors and many details. The quality is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day.
yquem46 (37476) 2012-01-30 8:59
Beautiful shot of the oasis in Tinerhir
Excellent color contrast of the ochre houses and rocks sandwiched between the deep blue sky and the greenery of the palm trees
Quite consistent with my own vision I had there of the place
have a nice evening
eldancer1 (22413) 2012-01-30 9:27
Wow! This look more like a Hollywood built city instead a real Morocan village. Awesome capture with good pov and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
gildasjan (40028) 2012-01-31 3:55
Trois plans bien contrastés en couleurs.Très belle harmonie de couleurs entre le second plan et ses architectures et le bleu dense de ce ciel.
sacavem (18608) 2012-01-31 13:12
I like the great contrast between the exhuberance vegetation and the rest of the landscape.Perfect POV.
Charo (51208) 2012-01-31 14:47
The city blends with the surrounding landscape, the great palm gives you a good color contrast and softens the rugged red terrain.
Very good perspective and excellent light and definition.
serp2000 (35068) 2012-02-01 2:39
My congratulations! Excellent tricolour composition, outstanding DoF. I like this saturation as a result of UV-filter, I think.
Have you seen a mirage in desert?
adramad (32851) 2012-02-01 4:19
A fantastic landscape, which I like very much these different areas of color, in these horizontal stripes in the foreground a lush and green oasis, the population and the mountains behind, showing various shades of earth tones and a wonderful blue all .
Very good light and sharpness, for these beautiful colors.
Have a great evening.
nikkitta (10418) 2012-02-01 18:33
Wow , what a great capture
Like a lot the capture divided in three very different colors
Green, orange and blue
Being the buildings and the desert the more interesting ( to my point of view)
Greetings and TFS
dip (22232) 2012-02-02 7:09
Γειά σου και πάλι Δάνο,
ωραία πανοραμική άποψη,πολύ καλή η επιλογή του σημείου λήψης,ενώ τα δέντρα της όασης στο προσκύνιο σε συνδιασμό με τον μπλέ ουρανό δημιουργούν μία όμορφη χρωματική αντίθεση με το χωριό και τους κοκκινωπούς βράχους,
Cricri (95347) 2012-02-02 10:30
Je reconnais bien là les villages du désert entre la végétation et les montagnes rouges, superbe ciel et lumière, belle présentation
Nard (6915) 2012-02-03 0:44
I like this kind of oasis where the green stands out the desert. The landscape is wonderful and well captured. A place I would like to visit.
clic (13006) 2012-02-03 7:34
Many thanks Danos
I have the impression you paraglided over the oasis
for this superb take that shows the adobe city hiding between trees and mountains to protect its virgin look from modernity.
And that "flight" shows intense perspective.
ChrisJ (92090) 2012-02-04 0:41
Another fine north African shot & here I like the horizontal layering and striking warm cold color contrasts between the green, red & blue. Good sharpness & interesting details to look at. Tfs!
kordinator (14805) 2012-02-06 1:13
This is a great angle to capture this fantastic place.
I love the photo layout.
Three levels of paint - oasis,village,sky.
Each part is perfect.
Best regards dear friend
Bluejeans (64247) 2012-02-08 5:26
Ola Danos ,
Beleza esta paisagem com um contraste de cores maravilhoso , belo oásis em primeiro plano com estas palmeiras , bonitas as montanhas de fundo , boa luz , parabéns!!

Good compo with horizontal layers following the rule of thirds. The place looks so typical, and the palm trees are nicely tight and make a great foreground.
saxo042 (35170) 2012-02-08 8:56
Marvellous colours of green brown and blue, lined up across the picture. A very fascinating landscape and a very good photo!
axiotea (21649) 2012-02-08 19:46

I really like how you've presented this beautiful place in three layers... the palms (date tree) made for a great FG, leading naturally the eye to the village/mountains and sky. the colours and contrasts are fine too!
Have a nice day
fds (6724) 2012-02-10 5:36
dear friend very beautiful point of view over the fantastic green oasis
great colors of the ocram village and gren palm in foreground
and very impressive blu sky
nobuikehonda (3848) 2012-02-12 6:59
Hello Dear Danos,
The foreground full of a green oasis provides the most hospitable atmosphere in the middle of the desert. The sweeping view from the foreground full of green to a group of the most intriguing architectures, the view even continues up to the mountain range in the background. The view contains a great depth. The stunningly blue sky possesses a very nice contrast with the green colours of the oasis. Unknown destinations like this have a most appealing and inviting ambience. The presented image makes the place very attractive. It is almost an open invitation for us all.
With my very best and warm regards,
Have a very pleasant Sunday, danos
debmercury (304) 2012-02-12 7:16
Really beautiful photograph Danos the buildings blend in amongst the mountains with their reddish earthy tones and the green trees and blue blue sky draw you in to the photograph. I love it.
Have a great day.
npecanhuk (58184) 2012-02-16 2:11
Wonderful and exotical view!

PaulVDV (18692) 2012-07-21 16:42
A fantastic desert picture with this oasis view excellently composed with horizontal layers.
Very strong colour contrasts between the blue, the red and the green part. The picture shows well the fact that there are some very fertile parts in that arid landscape.
Best regards, Paul
kiks (11743) 2012-11-24 12:28
So incredible such an oasis in de desert. And so hudge. I like your choice of composition with the florisant green of the palmtrees cntrasting with the orange buildings and mountains. Lovely done
