    Sorry, but I've never liked sites which start playing music as soon as I open them, therefore I didn't get a chance to look at any photos because as soon as the music started I closed the tab!

    OK, maybe this was not a good start, but the thread is a must have on any serious photo website ... So, let's proceed!

    The photo is taken in Erg Chebbi dunes near Merzouga - Morocco. One small group of seven just left for a night camp
    deeper into the desert dunes. What you see in foreground is a typical nomad camp in the area, this one is arranged
    mainly for tourists though ...

    Gabriel, I like the colors. It would be nice to have a bit of place detail in the travel thread.

    How was Morocco for landscapes? Or is it more a cultural trip?

    Here's one from Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Apparently last year they got enough rain to raise the water level ~4 meters (I here that's ~13 feet). That was enough to put a couple of the decks around our hotel completely under water. The fisherman is kind of misplaced in the frame, but the canoe is faster than the Pentax.

    Great shot with excellent composition. It is too bad the fisherman isn't facing the other direction. Might be time for serious Photoshoping...

    Yeah, I dislike it when people are facing away from the center of the frame.

    Really awesome. The landscape is very varied, with different views withing 30-40 kilometers in the Atlas mountains and a lot of interesting possibilities in the dune/desert area. There is also the Atlantic ocean coastlines with several towns with old buildings and magnificent views.
    One can also do serious cultural trip/photography in Morocco, the country is really old with a long history and there are lots of places/buildings/sites which are there since the roman civilization and in several cities most of the center area have been built in 13th century or earlier.
    There is also a rich variety of birds (some common, some rare or endangered species) and a lot of ornytologists and bird photographers organize special tours in several areas of the country.
    Finally - but not the last, street photo is extremely rich, if one manages to pass beyond the cultural barrier. Most of the
    people have interesting faces and expressions, extremely good subjects. Unfortunately most are against being photographed,
    but one can almost always find ways to do it.

    Unfortunately my trip there was too short (only 5 days). I managed to see some of Marrakesh and took a 3 days trip to the
    southern dunes crossing Atlas mountains. For only what I saw I could have used the double amount of time at least... and
    a good photo guide to get the most out of it. And this was only the southern part of Morocco. The north is even richer
    in cultural/history and places to visit.

    My opinion is that in a 2 week trip you can only scratch the surface of it and ... it's definitely worth to come back again!
