are they unique photos?
Because I have used one of the most advanced
cameras with a zoom range of 26 till 1500mm. People who have
visited Morocco will know how difficult it is to take
pictures of Moroccan
people, especially of Moroccan girls and women. With this
extreme telephoto lens (but at the same time very compact) it has
been possible to take many pictures of Moroccan girls and women. Note normal DSLR’s go to about 200mm! And if you use
longer normal telephoto lenses you will draw a lot of attention.
Then the most advances photo enhance software
has been used to get the maximum quality of these pictures of Morocco.
This photo enhance software improves the quality of many pictures
considerably, especially landscapes,
The pictures are not presented randomly as is mostly the case, but
in the form of slideshows, which gives a very good impression of the
beauty of Morocco and its people. The slideshow will adjust itself
to every screen seize, giving you the best way
of viewing possible nowadays.
It are of course the vision and skills of the photographer
who decide the end result. But all these advanced techniques are
creating possibilities for unique photo's. And that is what
makes every enthusiastic photographer happy.

of the highlights of this South Morocco trip:

square, is an enthralling and exotic Eastern experience populated by
snake-charmers, acrobats and storytellers. Marrakech has a medieval
medina and markets.
Aït Benhaddou is a 'fortified
city' along the former caravan route between the Sahara and
Marrakech in present-day Morocco. Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO
World Heritage Site since 1987 and several films have been shot
Agdz which means "resting
place" is located on the old caravan route linking Marrakech to
Timbuktu. The lively market is held weekly on Thursdays.
Gorges du Todra
The final 600 m of the Todra gorge are the most spectacular as the
canyon narrows to a flat stony track as little as 10m wide in places,
with sheer and smooth rock walls up to 160 m high on each side.
Merzouga - Erg Chebbi
on the edge of the Sahara, is Morocco’s most beautiful sand dune
Ouarzazate is famous
for the kasbah of Taourirt, the birthplace of the last pasha of

situation of women in Morocco. I also have documented in unique
pictures the change which is happening in Morocco about the basic
freedom of women to choose their own way of living.
Casablanca is home to
the Hassan II Mosque, designed by the French architect Michel

that can be visited by non-Muslims. I will comment on that in
