Photographer's Note

There is this famous quote attributed to Heraclitus: “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.” After watching older photos from Balos Lagoon, and then reading about it, I realised that the appearance of this beautiful place changes almost every year. If the winter is harsh and winds strong, the shallow stretches of sand may be rearranged next year. This applies to other similar places on Crete, like Elafonisi Beach as well. I purchased few photo albums and postcards which show the two beaches in the past and they are so very different. I guess if you like to visit beautiful beaches, but you like to experience something else every year, Crete may be the answer: every year the beaches will look differently, but certainly they will surprise you with their beauty. You cannot enter the same Balos Lagoon twice…
