‘Marrakech - The touch’

Hereby my impression of the famous ‘bleu Majorelle’. The pic is taken at the place of origin of the name, the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. I specially liked the combination with the artistic framework and with the red flowers.

The light was very strong and I realise the flowers are insufficient sharp but I was really struck by this beautiful colour combination (and I'm only a casual snap shooter who still has to learn so much).
Perhaps the picture in the workshop makes up for it. It shows more ‘bleu Majorelle’ of the museum seen from the garden.

The Majorelle Garden is a botanical garden in Marrakech, another oasis in the bustling city. The garden was designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in 1924.

The cobalt blue colour in which many parts of the garden and his studio are painted, is named after him: 'bleu Majorelle' ('Majorelle blue')

The beauty of the place lies in the combination of the lush vegetation and the many architectural elements that are an alliance of sobriety and traditional Moroccan art.
