Photographer's Note

The cove of the Cascades is a natural bay of the East coast of the island of the Reunion, between Bois Blanc and Piton Sainte Rose. Her name is the result of the many cascades which run its cliffs.

Small fishing port, it is also an arranged surface of picnic and a place of stroll at the edge of the Indian Ocean. You can be present at the delicate manoeuvres of fishermen, who must sometimes confront a strong swell for the launching of their multicoloured boats.

Traditionally, the young couples of Ste Rose come to have one’s photograph taken, the day of their weddings, in this place fresh, coloured, picturesque, shaded and luxuriant (coconuts, palm trees, vacoas, etc).

In the middle of this shot, a vacoa (Pandanus utilis) ("pinpin" , local name), tree of the family of pandanacées, tenant of the wet forest of low altitude, recognizable with its aerial roots and which protects the coasts from rages of the ocean.
