Erg Chebbi, Morocco

The magic hours for photographers in the morning are the hours just before and after sunrise. Sometimes we are disappointed that an expected magnificent sunrise can be nullified by cloud cover but the photographer will always find a photograph. It’s great being up early as it’s usually one of the most peaceful times of the day. I just love this time of day, being alone and totally immersed in the environs. I have included some of my favourites.

Images like these certainly make getting up early in the morning worthwhile. It doesn’t matter if it’s below freezing or it’s raining.
