I know that pictures of this kind are quite impopular on this site, if not looked with a certain suspicion. Nevertheless, it is pleasant for me to remember this moment when I was crossing the town of Rissani, heading to Merzouga, while the last, late students were returning home.
10 vertical images, 90 mm (x 1.5), 1/640 sec, f/8.

I think it has a good documentary value.

Great scene. We must have passed here twice as well last year, but I don't recall the pictures - probably due to the number of students on the road, which were typically oders of magnitude higher than on this picture, and typically distributing their bikes evenly across the road, demanding full concentration from a European rental car driver. Cheers, Martin

Yes, no more than five minutes before I would have had inside not two, but 50-60 people, walking, running or cycling. I thought that too much business would have distracted from what is the true subject here, namely, the wonderful and quiet light of the place. I am sure that, having been there, you understand what I am saying!
The best would have been to have other 3-4 people passing by, say, at 2/3 of the picture - actually, I remember that I slowed down the shots for that sake, but in vain. No more pedestrians or cyclists were in sight.
Cheers, Alberto.
