Ruins of a Kasbah

We stumbled upon these ruins of a Kasbah while trekking near Quarzazate, Morocco, in October 2018. The contrast between the field of corn, ready to harvest, and the ancient ruins framed by arid hills provided a wonderful metaphor for the circle of life and the timelessness of the Moroccan countryside.
