2013-05-04 - Fantasia Lineup

A few months ago I posted a teaser image from my time in Essaouira of the Fantasia, an amazing display of Moroccan horsemanship. The Fantasia was a feature of the Gnaoua World Music Festival and there were so many great photographic opportunities. It was one of my favourite parts of the whole trip. This image shows the riders lined up waiting for their run. I liked the sea in the background and the waves being whipped up by the ever-present strong winds in Essaouira.
