    Steam rising from food stalls in Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marrakesh


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While standing on a cafe rooftop, pmk731 captured this photo of Jemaa el-Fna, a popular market place in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh. "The square is so incredibly vibrant at night. As the sun sets, the parts of the square that were empty suddenly fill with food vendors and the sights and smells of different types of food," he says. " It's just amazing how it comes together every day and it's so lively. Especially coming from California, it was a very unique experience. It was unlike anything I had experienced before." His image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for March 22, 2013.

    The Jemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakesh's medina is an incredible place during the day, but even more magical and vibrant at night. This picture captures some of the action, showing the masses of people that flock to the food stalls and souks and the Koutoubia Mosque in the background.
