LIMA WINTER FOG OASES
LIMA WINTER FOG OASES
Fog oases are common along the Peruvian coast and Atacama, a unique planet ecosystem created by the action of the wind, humidity and temperature of the sea in winter.
Lima City is losing every year lot of these lands because of the absence of nature categorization and/or the absence of legal actions. This place is one of the nearest few survivors and has easy access.
The most important thing is that this environment only exists from mid-July to mid-October in a regular year.
If you are a nature lover this is a must be placed on your bucket list. So get ready to shoot birds, insects, flowers, and landscapes.
WHAT KIND OF PHOTOS WE DO?
Architecture, city streets, landscapes, birds and people.
WHEN TO GO?
From mid-July to mid-October.
Leave the hotel at 9 am. Arriving at Pachacamac at 10.
Hike and shoot for around three hours.
Drive back to Lima arriving around 2 pm.
We may arrange the trip to go in the afternoon around 1:30 pm
WHAT TO TAKE?
Basically in summer (Feb-mar) must use sunscreen and fresh clothes with higher temperatures of 30C, during winter (aug-sep) a wind vest for temperatures of 13-15C.
You may be a beginner or an expert. In case you want to learn we are able to teach you, showing tips about composition, light, and camera settings.

From/to Lima around 7 hours.
