Northern Morocco is carpeted with olive orchards everywhere. For about half the year, they look like this. I was expecting the whole country to look like a desert punctuated by some mountains so this was a surprising sight. The next time I visit Morocco for a cycling vacation I'll plan it during the spring so we get this lush green landscape to ride through.

A couple of years a go I wouldn't have stopped to take this photo. This image is a part of my effort to see and work more on composition. Seeing lines, curves, and depth is often the best way to make interesting images during mid day harsh light. I haven't written much about this

I haven't written much about composition, and I need to work on sharing those lessons learned because composition is one of the deepest and most enjoyable things to practice in photography. For now, this is the video I watched that got me interested in practicing composition by looking at how painters work.
