Hiking Le Morne Mountain

One Thursday evening (04/08/16), I received a call from my good friend Idriss about hiking Le Morne mountain for Saturday morning. One week after achieving Piton de la Petite Riviere Noire mountain, and now that the access to Le Morne mountain has been opened to the public… yes, previously it was a private access and one could only…

Nightlapse at Bagatelle

It’s been quite some time that I’ve been wanting to do a video timelapse at night or sunset but during these winter days and most-of-the-time bad weather it wasn’t really the moment to consider that. Last Thursday, after a weird winter cyclone, the weather somewhat improved greatly and I decided to take my GoPro with me and try that. After work I waited some time before leaving towards Bagatelle, calculated enough to reach at or minutes before sunset.

The timing was just right and the weather was appealing as well. I fixed the GoPro on the rails at the middle of the flyover and moved some 15 meters away and controlled it via wifi. Standing next to the gopro would make the drivers below believe someone is observing them and attract attention, better play low.

I tried different settings and at the end, after some 30 minutes of shooting, I packed and went back home, somewhat satisfied with the result even though I could use some more tools (filters and so on), but for a start it was just O.K.

Found in the region of St Pierre/Moka, this mountain has the reputation of being among the…
