Our second trip this year is also taking us to a new destination: Corsica. This large French Mediterranean island is also known as the "mountain in the sea", and for good reason: virtually the entire area of the island is marked by peaks, the highest of which towers up 2706 meters into the sky. Another characteristic of Corsica is the abundant supply of fresh water, making it exceptional in the Mediterranean region. You can see rivers and streams everywhere, ensuring a constant supply of water.
These rivers and streams are one of the main reasons why I decided to choose Corsica as the new destination for my projects. Two years ago, while I was on locations search here, I found a large number of wonderful places where the combination of light rocks, cool water and lush vegetation would form a very rewarding background for my models.
I decided that early June would be the best time for us to travel, because at that time of year we will most probably have a pleasant weather, while at the same time there won't be too many tourists at large on the island. However, actually getting to Corsica proves to be rather awkward: the only way we can all reach the place for a reasonable price is by spending the night in Paris on the way. Which means we will only have two and a half days on the island to do our work - rather less time than usual.
Melisa and Irena will be my models. Actually Nathalie was booked instead of Irena, but she had to cancel at the last moment because she has exams at the University this very week: she mixed up June and July and thought our trip was next month. Fortunately Irena was able to stand in for her. Marie will be the make-up artist and my assistant; she has performed these duties before, last year on our trip to the southern Alps.
