A Cinematic Journey through Morocco: The High Atlas, returning from the Sahara

One of the most fascinating things we did last year in Morocco was to travel from Marrakech through the High Atlas Mountains, and into the edge of the Sahara Desert. This photograph was made on the way back from the desert, from the passenger side seat of our car.

The High Atlas offer diverse and majestic landscapes. Landscapes that vary from desert to lush forrests. The entire trip there and back, I kept imagining that we were in a film. And with good reason, since these landscapes have been used for countless films and TV shows (for example Game of Thrones…). As such, I have a few of these cinematic scenes that I want to share. Imagine them larger then life. Imagine them as part of a story. Imagine them as characters in the story.
