Photographer's Note

Before we continuo our journey through the orient in the exotic streets of Marrakesh we take a little break at Jardin Majorelle in the new town.
In 1919 the french painter Jaques Majorelle fell in love with Marrakesh and moved there. Four years later he started a special garden with strong, deep saturated colors (the famous Majorelle blue) and plants and cacti from all over the world. This avantgardiste garden today is owned by the Yves St. Laurent trust and is open to the puplic.
According to our Riad host, the best time to visit is over lunchtime as the big tour groups are then at lunch and the garden less crowded. I was a bit skeptical as the harsh midday light of Morocco can be quite unforgiving. And right I was, the strong colors of the garden where a real challenge for every camera. Can you belief that I had to downgrade saturation in this composition by quite a lot in postproduction or you would need your sunglasses to look at it.
In the WS you find the originally saturated file.
