10 From The Caribbean 8. The Pitons, St Lucia
I have visited St Lucia on a number of occasions, but last month I went to the south-west of the island for the first time and saw the magnificent Pitons. My photograph shows the peaks of the two volcanic plugs – Gros Piton and Petit Piton – and the town of Soufriere. Soufriere used to be the capital of the island, and the Empress Josephine of France was once a resident.
