Cirque de Mafate with Gros Morne and Piton des Neiges


View from Le Grand Bord across the Cirque de Mafate towards north. La Nouvelle is seen in the left, Marla in the right centre of the image. The Gros Morne (3019 m) and the Piton des Neiges (3070 m) appear in the right background. The clouds moving in from the background reflect the uplift of the air masses driven against the northeastern slopes of the island by the tradewinds.
