Foggy Exploration with Alyna & Ishkhan

We’ve been having some unpredictable and unseasonably warm weather in Toronto so when I woke up to a warm foggy day last Thursday I put out a call to action!
Why not take advantage of this opportunity? Do you know what fog machines and their liquids cost?
Luckily, Alyna and Ishkhan came to the rescue! They responded to my facebook post and we set off on a foggy day adventure.

The fog had started to move by that point so we went to the Bluffs where we hoped the fog would still be thick; and was it ever. You could barely see the towering rocks, everything felt so quiet and eerie, no horizon in sight yet there was something romantic about it.

We took advantage of the low tide and I asked them if they wouldn’t mind taking some photographs for me. I loved the way her hair and his hat pop with monochromatic view of the lake. It really was a fun day.

What was unique about this process for me was there it was completely on a whim. I didn’t tell them what to wear or where we were going, we only decided after getting in the car. We got to the location and just went with it. I’m really hoping to do more of these soon, Lets go out and shoot!

(Also, we happened upon this super photographic pupper who kept posing for the camera. I love him.)

Exploring the Caves of Diros

Located in Mani, Greece. The Caves are also known as as The Caves of Vlyhada. It costs about $13 for entry and you’ll want to go early to make sure you get tickets. The caves are a big attraction, they have limited boat trips in a day so if you’d like to go be sure to go there early.

We arrived around 10:30 am and waited about 30 minutes till our number was called. Our guides name was Elias and he had been doing this for about 30 years. The caves are full of stalagmites and stalactites  and you have to duck at points when they come very low. As I was the tallest person on the boat, the young girls at the front were kind enough to yell out for me to duck. You have to be sure not to veer left or right or you might tip the boat.

The Caves are millions of years old and at one point we were 250m below the mountains top and there was still 30m of water below us.

After the +20 minute boat ride, they let you off and you walk another 300m before you actually exit the caves. Then about another 1km back to the car. It was definitely a work out but worth the trip!

Totally worth the trek. What a beautiful view.
