Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Morocco Odyssey 17: Trip to Erfoud [Sky Watch Friday]

It was time to take our leave of Fes and make our way over the Middle Atlas Mountain range. The route wound its way through beautiful pine groves and giant cedar forests; and it crossed over a 6,000-foot pass where there was still snow and people making the most of its presence. The shots below were taken through the bus window as we made our way towards the Sahara. Skis and sleds, and even camels, were available for rent.


                                          And, of course, there was food for sale.
          Occasionally, there was a magnificent view of the mountains through the window.
We arrived in Erfoud, a small trading village that is the gateway to the Sahara, were we would spend the night before venturing into the desert  Before dinner, I took a walk around the grounds and came across two photo-ops: a mother and child camel followed by a wonderful sunset.
