I stand corrected. My wife (the artist in the family) tells me that I should have uploaded this photo yesterday because the column cuts through the horizon. She is probably correct.
This photo shows a single Roman column from Volubilis (settled by the Carthaginians and then the Romans who abandoned the site in the 3rd century). As with my previous photo it shows the verdant green of early spring in Morocco - showing that not all Morocco is desert and dust!
A cloudy day (it rained later) with a touch of sun shine.

I have been there too in 2006.....
more than the mosaics there I love the landscape surrounding this place: it was northern africa...it looked like central Italy

I agree with jeppo, this landscape looks like it is in the middle of Italy not Morocco.
I wouldn't worry about the overcast sky, there's nothing you can do about the weather and you've managed a fine shot anyway, yes, sunshine would have been nice but.......
Good looking shot, the minimalist look is quite striking. All of those ruins in Morocco, those Romans sure knew how to travel.
