Another shot from the nice city of Skoura south of the Marocan Atlas.
This a view of the incredible sunset with a silhouette of one of the Ksar in the middle of the palm trees.
I cropped the lower part a little bit so as to enhance the sunset colors : I hope I didn't too much... I think it's the most flamboyant sunset I've never seen in my life...

An amazing shot. Great silhouette. The sky is magnificent. It reminds me of the fire from a flamethrower. Well captured.

I just had to look at this picture when I saw the thumbnail. It is awesome! I think your worry about cropping too much of the lower part is unjustified - for me this composition works perfectly. Like Andrew and Paul said - the sky looks like it's on fire. Remarkable job.

Je crois que cela se prononce "KASR" ou palais.
Vous avez voulu donner plus d'importance au ciel flamboyant presque dramatique, le filtre uv est inutile dans ces conditions de prise de vues sauf pour protéger votre objectif de son pire ennemi :" Le sable".

Flamboyant indeed! The sky is on fire. the silhouette of the traditional style of buildings gives a great sense of the place. Sunsets can be anywhere so something distinctly local in the foreground makes it special.
