Fishing


Quite a lot of blue in Essouira. Here the seagulls circle the innards of fish being discarded by the dock.

Towers built by the Portuguese guard the harbor.

I think the fishermen go out to sea in bigger boats than these in a sheltered part of the harbor.

The sea looks frightening and powerful. Waves smash against jagged rocks. Not a good place for a shipwreck.

This is my daughter who was in Essouira on my previous visit in December.
I would make a link if I knew how..........!!

I went to Essaouira in July. Loved the gypsy-hippy feel. An amazing place!
And Majorelle in November. Your photos are beautiful.

Oh how I love the coastline of any sea! Great photos.

Elizabeth said...

Yes, the coastline here is stunning - wide sand beaches, sand dunes, then cliffs with caves and rock pools. Reminds me a little of north Cornwall.
Sea rather cold - but windsurfers love it.

The sky is a warm blue there...It is a cold blue here in Norway at the moment. It is so beautiful, rich and varied where you are--it is a joy to see! Happy Day ((HUGS))

Hi Elizabeth- I followed you over from my blog. I love all your photos- are the colors really that vibrant in person? Beautiful! (Especially being in the depths of winter over here...)

Elizabeth said...

Yes!
All the colors seem almost supercharged here - which means I'll try to take some quiet pictures soon.
My daughter

has some good photos of Essouira taken a few weeks ago.
She is a real photographer. I'm learning from her...
