The story behind the image

At the age of 34 I had not visited many beach hotels in my life, and when I arrived at the Hotel Club Al Moggar in Agadir, Marocco, I was stunned by its beauty. Unlike some of the high rise sins in Spain and Portugal, the buildings were relatively small and distributed across the real estate. And there was a large garden with multiple swimming pools while the Atlantic Ocean was just a few steps away. Pure luxury!

What’s more, the terrace of the restaurant provided stunning views across the Ocean while dining. So, one evening I took the camera and captured the approaching sunset over the property. Especially during the European winter, this can be the foundation for a nice, relaxing dream. 😉
