Ozud, Morocco

We love natural, untouched beauty, and there is perhaps no more perfect example than this remote Moroccan waterfall. But how exactly does one go about shooting these most magnificent natural wonders in remote locations such as this one?

You won't want to miss this FREE eBook that offers insight about photographing waterfalls in the midst of a backpacking adventure: http://visualwilderness.com/special-offer/free-ebook.

Have you ever gone off the beaten path to find something beautiful? We'd love to hear about it!
