Market day in the Moroccan town of Essaouira attracting townsfolk and seagulls to the quayside. Inspired by a road trip through the High Atlas mountains and ending in this vibrant, coastal town with a very welcome swimming pool. Warm yellows and burnt orange tones provide a sense of space with the typical low, white houses in the background.
