Photographer's Note

October 20, 2004 The channel of Beauregard, or "channel of the Slaves", carries out of Bottom-Saint-Denis to Carbet, along an old irrigation canal. Vestige of the sugar activity of the XVIIIe century, it was built in 1760, by slaves, to provide energy to the crushing mills of cane. Crystalline rivers, crawling tall grasses of small fresh water crabs and panoramic sight with discovered on the pitons of Carbet: the path excels of diversity. Walk on the elevated low wall of the channel makes it possible to approach the summit of splendid trees: cheesemongers of more than 30 m in height and red gommiers to the bark as fine as of the cigarette paper. This channel resembles on many points the "bisses" that the Valaisans have built in the Alps. The photograph is taken in an underwood, the various colours of green impressed me in this sight.
