Gare de Marrakech

By TrevBatWCC    
One for Dave (HobbitDave), who asked if I went on the Marrakech Express. Well, not quite, but had a walk to the railway station and had a peep inside, just as a train pulled in. Not quite the exotic train the song ‘Marrakech Express’ conjures up, but more like the local electric trains around here where I live! 😁
The lead is outside the station building, the version from on the first platform as you go in. The light was very contrasty, and the waiting passengers were almost silhouetted against the background. With quite a lot a tweaking in PS managed to bring out some detail, even though it was a Jpeg, not Raw.
It is rather different now to when I took these back in 2006. A new railway station has been built there, the current station opening on August 10th, 2008.

All archive images taken on my 3.2-megapixel compact Nikon Coolpix as Jpegs, tweaked in Photoshop Elements 14

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😀👍

Good to see what the station looked like.
The cars don't fit with my image of Marrakech.
I expect to see quaint vehicles or camels somehow!
