View large please!


This shot has loads of detail, so it needs to be viewed large to fully appreciate it! While sitting in a restaurant in the main square of Marrakech, Djemaa El-Fna, I was amazed by the sheer number of people milling around. I had taken a few shots of this, but it was only when the blue hour came and the lights went on that I saw how awesome this sight really was.


This square is reasonably quiet during the day, most likely due to the heat of midday Morocco, but in the evening it really picks up. There are several mosques beside it, including the famous Koutoubia Mosque (left in the photo) and when we were there a boxing ring had been erected and fights were going on. This was a handheld shot from the balcony of a French restaurant on the square.
