A Tour Of Morocco Through Our iPhone Lens

While we were in Morocco, we spent a lot of time off the grid. Whether we were riding camels in the Sahara, touring the old kasbah at Aït Benhaddou or checking out ancient Sub-Saharan trading routes we were often with limited Internet access. That said, our iPhones became the easiest way to quickly record and share our experiences while out and about.

Morocco is one of those rare places that lives up to its extraordinary reputation. The streets of Marrakech were teeming and busy, with Moroccan mint tea and the comfort of our quiet riad for respite (though getting to our riad was quite a challenge!). There seemed to be photo opportunities at every turn in the sprawling city.

Beautiful photos of Morocco taken with an iphone

During our two day excursion through the Atlas Mountains and into the Sahara, we also took more than our fair share of pics. Many of those were just quick snaps to record the moment, and share on Instagram, but we were so happy with how they turned out that we wanted to share them here too!

But maybe we’ll just let the photos tell you… All of these photos were taken on an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4S.
