Highlight of my last month’s trip with friends —
Palawan’s Underground River!
You heard me yak about it in this blog a million times! So…here we go!!
I. In a Nutshell
We reached our destination around 9am or so. As the crowd thickens, we were glad that there were a lot of boats and tourist guides to assist us in our journey. Nature kept us entertained with its charm; I tried to capture every bit of it while we wait for our turn to get inside the cave.
Enough stalling. First, let me show you the photos I came up with:
Splendidly beautiful would be an understatement, so to speak, in describing what I saw & experience inside. The mystic cave, along with its underground river, has formed such wonderful rock formations, of which I still am in awe as I think about it. Encased in pitch black darkness, you definitely need a bright light to see what’s underneath… and a PRO camera to capture “every bit of detail” that lies inside.
Finally, OUR TURN!
In the 30-minute duration of our Underground River trip, I thought to myself, “I seriously need to get a new body”. Not for me, but for my lens. The cave was so dark, we only had one source of light — and that’s from the boatman-slash-tourist guide who made one of my travel companions in-charge of pointing the light to whatever direction he was saying.
I got a couple of average shots, but someday, maybe I’ll be back and “armed” with some higher form of gadget to capture (once more) its beauty.
