A Photo Essay: "Colour of Adventure". Morocco, North Africa
By day four I was thinking, “Can this country blow my mind anymore?” Yes, it can!
I have visited Morocco twice in the past year, hiking the High Atlas Mountains and summiting North Africa’s highest peak, Jbel Toubkal on my first adventure.
A photographers’ nirvana, each city has its own colour palette of simplicity, be it the muted tones of whites and browns of Fez, or the dynamic blues of Chefchaouen, proudly called the Blue Pearl of Morocco.
This country doesn’t suffer from mediocrity and therefore it can polarise many. However, if there is one characteristic that Morocco refines in those who visit, it is patience. Through its modern and ancient cultures, welcoming locals and incredible landscapes, this country will reveal layer upon layer of adventure, wonder and beauty if only you give it permission and time.
Whether your adventure takes you through its labyrinthine medinas or hiking its rugged, scree covered High Atlas Mountains, have no doubts, Morocco will test you. These lessons however will enrich you and provide a truly memorable adventure that only this North African country could.
