Ait - Benhaddou: a photo journal to the Game of Thrones film site.
The journey began even before the break of dawn:
with bleary eyes, yawns and sniffles in winter jackets.
Amidst sleeping valleys, the sun and moon share an intimate moment.
A moment of utter stillness before the moon and stars bade us goodbye
and the sun engulfed us with the promise of adventure.
The valley of nature's architect:
from stone and debris to artful masterpieces.
Beyond its workshop lay a vast sandy landscape - a
backdrop for the occasional dwelling or the vibrance of local handicrafts.
An architectural wonder to awe all : Game of Thrones fans or not.
Under the blistering sun, we hiked.
To the top : as a villager of old, wary of invaders.
Along the river : as a wayward traveller finding his way to shelter.
The twilight artist had once again, repainted the sky to muted purples.
The moon enwrapped the now tired students in soiled t-shirts in her soft,
comforting glow as the valleys were swallowed in shadow.
