This beautiful old fortress built at the base of two river valleys high up in the Atlas Mountains is now a hotel run by Richard Branson’s Virgin group. It is a wonderfully peaceful place with cool breezes and clear, clean mountain air. I woke up early to take an aerial shot and found a morning mist on the mountains. This cleared to a clear blue sky in an hour or so. This evening will be an opportunity for shooting star trails as this is a dark sky area, relatively free from light pollution.
