Epimeteus

Seeking for refreshment in the middle of summer can take you to the strangest places, our path led us to the old village Gliki in Greece.

According to the ancient Greek myth, Acheron was the son of god Helios who fought on the side of mighty Titans against the Olympians. Zeus decided to punish him so he turned him to river of grief leading to the underworld, Hades.

In reality you can find breathtaking turquoise river, surreal forest and narrow limestone canyon which guides the powerful water current, the scenery was unreal. Water was freezing cold and every step hurt just as the remainder. We pushed forward intoxicated with strange mix if myth and reality trying to imagine epic battles between the old and the new gods.

Sometimes the scenery is hard to transfer to photograph, we could spend a full day there and we wouldn’t even scratch the surface. You have to see it to believe it, how water carved its way thru solid rocks, how it raises from the ground and how the wind caries the scent of the nearby sea gently whispering your name.

Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye… it also includes the inner pictures of the soul. Edvard Munch

Have you ever experienced myths in reality??
