20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Experiencing the Vastness of the Moroccan Desert

A scene of me and Morocco - the desert of everchanging sand mountains that seemed to go on forever. I solo-traveled through Morocco and was grateful to find an empty desert scene when I finally made my way out of the cities. The orange hues against the stark gray sky allowed for a moment of pure awe.
