Cirque de Cilaos

WI_re074.jpg

View across the Cirque de Cilaos with the town of Cilaos towards southeast. The Piton de la Fournaise (2632 m) appears in the background near the left edge of the image. The clouds moving in from the left side reflect the uplift of the air masses driven against the eastern slopes of the island by the tradewinds.
