How great it is to plan a visit of the island with a great photographer and friend!
Following a post from a wildlife photographer about the lack of female wildlife photographers, I met Gabby Salazar, a brilliant photographer from America. She is actually on Mauritius Island for a special visit and we went for nature exploration last week on the highlands, around Bois Chéri and the Black River Gorges.
Gabby has a special eye for patterns and is a big fan of orchids. She is also a specialist in photography workshops in America and showed me some cool techniques. I specially love the painting effect when she took a picture of some amazing trees covered in bright orange fungi.
Since we are both nature lovers and passionate photographers, we weren’t discouraged by the rain or wind on the highlands but rather patiently wait to capture amazing shots to share with you: gorgeous orchids, colourful geckos, delicate flowers and other tropical species.
This was an overview. I will be posting more soon!
