Taliouine mountain road driving landscape, Morocco

Dramatic and cloudy Taliouine mountain road driving landscape, Taliouine & Taroudant Province, Sirwa Mountain Range, Souss Massa Draa region of Morocco 2015-10-24. 

The Sirwa mountains are a range known for their dramatic changes in climate. The vast rocky valleys making up the valleys appear somewhat inhabitable and general infrastructure is limited.

Once a volcanic plateau, the soil underneath all the rocks and shrubbery is incredibly fertile and when farmed with the right techniques and knowledge, is amazingly plentiful.

Quality of farming in this part of the world lends itself not to the sophistication of farm machinery or chemicals, but to the skill and determination of the farmers themselves.

This landscape is from the Taliouine Province of Morocco, a region famed for it's ability to grow high quality saffron.
