Landscapes of North Africa: Session ONE

Tischka Pass, HDR by Alan Stern
Here we are in North Africa shooting everything, but especially landscapes, on our CCE trip for Sydeny Uni. The landscape around Casablanca stretching thru to Marrakesh is nothing special - it's essentially the breadbasket for the rest of the country - in March it's very lush and green. You have to pinch yourself to be reminded that this is North Africa, not provincal France. Over the Atlas things are totally different. Massive valleys, deep, deep gorges and ochre-coloured earth stretching south into the sub sahara.
