Sunset over Marrakech

The days are long and hot in Marrakech but each night when the skies are clear the sun sets with dramatic colours. The busy city below is oblivious to the colours as the sun drops over the horizon on another day.

Finding sunset in Marrakech is easy but is usually a busy affair. The restaurant terraces are full of people trying to capture the moment.  Sitting with a mint tea, watching the camera cabaret on the terrace and the night market in Jemma El-Fnaa square below is the perfect way to end a day.

Sunset in Marrakech allows photography without people or the associated stress, especially when you find a balcony over looking the night market.
