This was filmed between 28th and 29 November 2012 in a foot of the mountain Psiloritis, in the island of Creta. We take many days for a commercial-documentary project and we had a time to see all those beauties. My favorite shooting is the nature photography.
Mount Ida also known as Idha, Ídhi, Idi and Psiloritis sits at 2,456 meters looking down over Crete from the centre of the island. The range extends through Rethymnon and Iraklion prefectures in an east west direction.
The name Ida seems to be derived from the ancient word for the mother goddess de or da.
Psiloritis literally means “the tall one” and is a proud and affectionate name for the mountain which gives him a personality and instantly creates a relationship of awe and respect.
Home of many mountain villages, such as Anogia, Petroxori and Nida Plateau.
The greatest challenge with this project was being in the right place at the right time. Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool lightning and clouds. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.
