Everyone, gets to the top of the volcano trail and is left in awe from the sight of the cone and then you turn around and even a grander sight awaits you!

Plaine des Osmondes

Photo 70 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Yet another panoramic view from Le Piton de la Fournaise.
We were concerned about the accumulation of clouds but these tend to evaporate quickly over the intense heat of the Plaine des Osmondes.
The black solidified lava flows heat up and literally cause an updraft.
Unfortunately the volcano was very quiet whilst we were there, so I could not shoot an active lava flow.

Standing on top of Pas de Bellecombe the Piton de la Fournaise looks so diminutive, don’t be fouled it’s anything but!

Reunion in the mist

Forest in the mist

The day we went to the “Foret Domaniale des Makes” the mist was present, I did not realize until then how much it could change the mood and perseption of a single photo.

Enclos du Piton de la Fournaise

Photo 67 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

From the trek up the volcano in the horizon sits le Pas de Bellecombe at 2311m in altitude, the plain below “Enclos du Piton de la Fournaise” a hundred meters below. You can also clearly see the white markings of the trail and cooled lava flows on either side.
Not your average hike I can promise you.

La Fenêtre

La Fenêtre

Photo 66 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Overlooking le Cirque de Cilaos from La Fenêtre at Les Makes at about 1600 meters above sea level is intimidating at best, knowing that there is a cool 1000 meters fall before you makes you feel a little off your game, particularly if all you see is a blanket of grey.
Luckily enough, we had the chance to see what was bellow that blanket, it did not last long.
