Location: Meski (995 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Morocco      Date: 28-03-2012
One of the top attractions of the Ziz valley is the Source Bleue de Meski, a natural spring among the palms, to which unfortunately a concrete swimming pool has been annexed, with the usual plethora of kitsch souvenir shops. In low season, however, you can still enjoy excerpts of a more authentic local life, with mules travelling up and down from the above village, carrying women going to the water to do cloth-washing, which here is a major socialization moment.
On the rocky platform dominating the eroded valley, you can still have a good shooting time, for example comparing styles of transportation which differ by several orders of magnitude both in weight and in budget: www.panoramio.com/photo/117894558 Or, more conventionally, you can take a picture of the old kasbah on the other side, surging above the palms. For my taste, this is captured best by the Einzelbild version www.panoramio.com/photo/92777458 which also employs the old honoured polarizer, unlike the panorama shown here. My mind went to this old work while looking at the exotic N.17211.

I suspected the source of inspiration before reading the text ;-) Very nice with the kasbah in the background and actually very typical combination of colours. Cheers, Martin
