Mauritius_1329

While currently sorting through photos from Mauritius to add to my collection, I realized how most of the photos I see online from the island are usually taken around beaches and the ocean, or within its capital city, Port Louis. Mauritius has a stunning interior which I got to explore en route to and within Domaine de l’Etoile nature reserve.

So I wanted to share about 20 landscape photos of Mauritius, especially its interior rolling hills and lush greenery. The  cloudy day added a lot of drama to each landscape shot and the fields of sugarcane and pineapple. While I love photographing people, creating environmental portraits, and moving through markets and their lifestyles, I do enjoy landscape photography, though I’d rather wait for gloomy skies or inclement weather as well as chase natural light angles to add atmosphere to my photos.

I was in Mauritius on assignment for Four Seasons working on several stories and I got to explore this beautiful island deeply through its food, markets, and local culture. Can’t wait to return.
