Cap Corse

Corsica

As I already said, Corsica was great. I didn’t spend enough time back there, only 5 days… I might go back again later, but now is time to prepare my great Asian trip! One month, 5 countries and thousands miles ahead of me. Sounds good!

Let’s talk about Corsica for now. In an ancient post, I spoked about the rattling fact that every roadsign in USA get shot. I was wondering if it was the same elsewhere in the world… I partly got an answer when driving around Corsica.
Every damn road sign got their share of lead too. Still don’t know what is the meaning of that (or if it is just a hobby) but it sure scare the foreigner ;D

Here, two quick pictures of Corsica : our welcoming sign and the reflection of our departure on the ferry window.

 

Cap Corse

Here is the first post-processed picture from Corsica. I took it during our first day, when we went hiking on the far end of the Cap Corse.

The Cap Corse is a 40km long peninsula located at the Northern tip of the island. It’s the pointing finger of Corsica. La Sierra, a mountain chain, lies inside the finger, giving it a beautiful hilly look.

All around the Cap Corse are buildt Genoese Towers, that are the heritage of the Genoese occupation of Corsica from 1347 to 1729. These Towers were erected at the request of communities to protect villages against the pirates. They spread all around Corsica, with one third concentrated around Cap Corse.
Here is a photography of the Finocchariola Island with its collapsing Genoese Tower.

Sunrise

Spain

I got back to Corsica just in time to take the road straight to Spain. I will sleep in Barcelona tonight and drive south on the morning. I am going to Murcia south of Spain.
I will finally quit my job pretty soon and I will try to make a living trough photography. As I am going to travel much during the next year, I add a map on the left of the blog that point where I am. So now you can follow me from behind your screen. How cool is that??

Corsica

Corsica was great. Had so much fun back there. I got plenty of pictures too but they are stuck on my memory card… I got some software issues with my Nikon and my MBP. Anyway I manage to get some so here is one just for you.
We took the night ferry, 5hour night sleeping on the iron floor of the boat. Hard times. But to welcome us in Corsica, we got this beautiful sunrise, seen from the front deck of the boat. Enjoy!

Lost canoe

Sooner than expected

That’s it guys, my next trip is really close. Next Monday I will go for a week to Corsica, which is a small french island in the Mediterranean Sea.
We are going to be just two photographers, so we might woke up early to capture some sunrises  ;D
I really hope to bring back some beautiful pictures for you guys.
After that, I will follow on with another week abroad, in south of Spain to be precise. Then Asia for august!
I am excited, so much adventures to come!!!

Lost canoe

This one is from my trip to Florida a year ago. I flight to join the on-going 3 month roadtrip of two friends. I met them in Miami and stuck with them for 2 weeks around the Sunshine State. That was really cool. We went to The Keys, where we couldn’t find anywhere to sleep, took some time to chill on the Everglades and went all the way up to Orlando to salute Mickey Mouse. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring much pictures home.
I took this photograph during a two days/15 miles canoe trip in the Hell’s Bay Mangrove Swamp. That was an exhausting journey and the liters of beer we drank on the way, didn’t really helped ;D
After much detour (everything looked the same), we finally arrived at the chickee around 6pm. Chickees are elevated wooden platforms constructed over open water, they give canoeists the opportunity to stay in the mangrove swamp overnight.
There we met a nice couple that was kind enough to share a bottle of wine with us. So we sat there, drank and watch the sunset to finally called it a night really early.
I took this picture the following evening on our way home, when we stopped at some pier to have lunch.

Jun 6, 2012 - Reunion Island, waterfall    No Comments

Another waterfall

Exhibition

A dozens of my picture are exhibited in a Restaurant of Toulouse : La Petite Gouaille. The preview is scheduled for this sunday 10th around 8pm. Every one is welcome, even if I don’t think that english speakers are not from Toulouse ;D

Waterfall

This is another waterfall from la Réunion, this one comes from the Cirque of Salazie wich is the northern one of the island. As you could see trough this blog, Réunion island is the paradise for waterfall lovers.
This one wasn’t hard to found, we could saw it from the road. You just have to park your car, climb few hundreds meters and here you are.
Surely not the most beautiful waterfall from la Réunion, but the view was great, the sun was shinning and we took some time to bath under the fall and chill out for couples hours.

Trois Bassins

New Design

The new design for the blog is here. I hope ou will enjoy it. New features comes with it, now you have categories on the sidebar, with some new links. I also added a link to my google + account if you mind to add me to your circles.

3 bassins

Another picture from la réunion. This one comes from the lowest one of the 3 bassins near the city of Saint Gilles. The
place is supposed to be closed to public but every saturday, everyone gather here, follow the waterway for a long hike to finaly see the first pond.
We arrived here around 2PM and I just had the time to take this shot before we got hit by an enormous downpour that last the next hours of sun. We had to hike back under the rain and we finished totally soaked. It was such a shame cause the place was made for photography.
