Landscape photography, Morocco Landmarks, Sidi-Ifni Rock Arches, Mirleft

Morocco Landmarks to myself…

Landscape Photography By Barney Delaney - Morocco Landmarks, Sidi-Ifni Rock Arches

Day 12 of my Morocco landmarks road trip. I had been looking for the Sidi-Ifni rock arches at Sidi-Ifni Beach (nr the village of Mirleft) for a little while, I figured the beach would make a great place to relax for a little while after all the driving I’d been doing.

The day started out as a warm but overcast day, landscape photography was not my first objective today,  so not a bad day for walking along the long beach in search of a quiet spot – but then I saw the famous Sidi-Ifni rock arches the locals had been talking about, awesome! Another amazing Morocco Landmarks and one for the landscape photography journal!

I’d initially have liked to capture the shadow area’s tucked away at the base of the main rock arch in the foreground, but there was no light, it was far to overcast! So I resided to relax for a few hours anyway, listening to the surf while reading my book and planning the next stage of my Moroccan adventure.

Then from out of nowhere we got a break in the cloud and the sun did it’s thing. Almost right away the rock changed to a warm orange colour , a blue sky made a breif appearance, and the light meter nearly went off the scale! I really had to wrestle with the exposure as the light was changing all the while, I managed with just the one 0.6 soft grad and underexposed a tad to keep the highlights – not much chance of inked-out shadows now!

 

Luckily I had the beach to myself for the rest of the afternoon and managed to fully relax before our drive back to Les Trois Chameaux, my hill top retreat in Mirleft, very rare to have the entire Sidi-Ifni beach and a whole Morocco landmark to myself in the height of the local holidays!

    Morocco is also a journey into a timeless, tranquil world of cute coastal villages, colourful-painted towns that cling to hillsides and remote outposts defended by fairytale adobe forts. This fascinating country is a merging of the African and Arab worlds, and is steeped in age-old customs. It’s no wonder Morocco has been feted by artists and writers for decades and continues to enchant all who visit. Great blog!
