Photography 101: Water

At the mention of water, my mind goes to this place — Mambukal Mountain Resort, Negros Island, Philippines. It’s a place where the Negrenses and tourists alike  rejuvenate one’s spirit and get in touch with Mother Nature.

There is so much water here. According to our tourist guide, a big mountain stream descends in a series of seven waterfalls and cuts through the center of the resort, feeding the water holes and boating lagoon.

Swimming is discouraged in the boating lagoon because it is just 9 feet deep and 36m x 23m wide.

This pool is chlorinated. It has a wading area that divides the 3-ft kiddie pool and 5-ft adult pool.

No one is allowed to swim here. There is a huge sign that says CAUTION: HOT SULFUR NO SWIMMING.

Excitement builds up when you see this before you get to the First Waterfalls.

Alas, I need more energy to see the other five waterfalls. I told my husband that I was starving and that my remaining strength was sufficient to get myself down from the Second Waterfalls to the food court.

NOTE: All the photos above were captured by my Samsung camera phone.

NOTE TO SELF: Next time, bring a good camera for better pictures… and don’t go up to see the falls in noon time.  😉
