Ouzoud Falls

Ouzoud Waterfall was the perfect way to end our week in Marrakech. Having witnessed the near suicidal Moroccan road etiquette, neither of us fancied driving, so we booked an organised day trip instead. Our English-speaking guide was amazing, leading us on a tour through a Berber village, where we had home-made lamb tagine for lunch before hiking up to the falls.

Beware of the monkeys. They're funny little characters, but they will try to make off with your fancy camera if you get close enough!

These photographs were taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the extraordinary Canon 35 mm f/1.4 L II USM .
