    Photo 11 the 2016 Collection

    I have been shooting a lot with the Canon EOS 70D paired with either the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4 IS STM or the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM.
    I must admit that the Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM has taken residence on my Canon EOS 70D, it’s dimunitive compact size is ideal for the kind of shooting I do.
    This is the lock bridge at The French Toast Coffee Cafe in Hartbeespoort, more about the cafe that was a movie set here.

    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.

    Reunion Island topology is hard to explain try looking at this for reference.

    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.
