At the top of the ancient town of Aït Benhaddou is the granary. Makes sense. If attacked, you better have food and water protected.
I got up well before dawn to wander around and take photos, hoping for clear night skies and some stars. Wrong. All I had was clouds and incredible pre-dawn darkness.
But what the heck, I might as well point the camera and see what comes out.
My first try was looking down on the town. High ISO (3200) and a long exposure (over two minutes) plus a little flashlight on the town itself = ????????????. I looked at the result and saw an image I did not expect, but will happily take.
Kind of cool. Weird, but cool. As dawn slowly approached a bit of lightning flashed in the distance and the light got a weird blue tint. I turned around and took this shot of the granary. Again. Weird but cool. I am not sure where the orange light came from but it is another image I will happily take!
Moral of the story? You never know what you will get unless you try!
