PhotoHunt: MAGICAL

This is one of the rare times I really wish I had a real pro's camera because my puny point-and-shoot simply did not do justice to capture the majesty of Tinago Falls.

The Filipino word for "hidden," Tinago Falls is nestled in a lush forest environment about 45 minutes' drive on rough roads from the national highway. As a person in the worst possible physical shape, it me about 20 minutes to go down some 300-odd steps into the valley that cradles Tinago. (Then thrice as long to go back up.)

But to say that it is worth the hike is the year's understatement. It is simply amazing. Even magical.

  1. As someone who is also in the worst possible physical shape I love these magical moments when you see such magic at the end.

  2. Beautiful waterfall !! I would say that is truly magical!!

  3. One of the best waterfalls I have ever visited. The first time I visited this place was in the early 90's. It was the time when we walk down holding just grasses and twines lol!! Thanks for sharing the photo.


  4. Very beautiful! Sometimes I find more beauty in the photos I take on my iPod Touch rather than my mighty high megapixel DSLR Cannon!

  5. @vicki: it was so worth the stress haha
    @ancient one: truly beautiful =]
    @kim: it's a bit more humane now, the trip going to and from the falls =] glad it is that way now hehe
    @thesocialfrog: true that, also: the mini-cams have this shooting from the hip niceness about them


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog! See you again next time here or in my main blog- So far, so good.
