Morning on Réunion Island

Photograph by Véronique Rochard

Sunlight breaks through a cloudy sky over the French island of Réunion in the southwest Indian Ocean. "I got up very early to take a picture of this scene, and when I saw these rays of sunshine through the clouds, I was amazed and very excited," writes Véronique Rochard, who submitted this picture to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest. It rained just a few minutes later, she added.
