Hagimit Falls, Samal Island: An Intimate Afternoon
Now the Idea is to explore! Its my 2nd time here in Davao and as soon as I finished my case, I'm off to Samal Island. My destination is a good 30 minute barge ride from the pier, another 30-40 minute bus drive to Penaplata and upon reaching the terminal it's another 20 minute motorcycle (habal-habal) ride into the heart of Samal. The travel going there is all worth it as I just witnessed another nature's wonder! With that in mind let me present to you an Intimate Afternoon at Hagimit Falls, Samal Island Davao.:)

Beautiful shot! I can see this image gracing some travel magazine cover. I wonder if you got a shot centered a little more to the left, so I can enjoy the fall in its entirety. Perhaps there was some distraction there you didn't want to show?

This must be my favorite part of Hagimit! The water is so cool and the rocks here are really unique! Hence, giving this awesome white water formation! It just tops my list over Kawasan, Mantayupan, Katibawasan, and the other Falls I've been to!:)

entrance is only 20php. You need to go down 96 steps to see the 1st level/ body of water, from there a series of path walks going to the different areas of Hagimit.

#3 96 STEPS

for this shot, i really like how the roots creep out on top of the soil.. gives more drama with the white water at the midground.The falls is located in the Samal District, about 2km outside of Penaplata, which would be southeast from our land on Limao.

An incredibly beautiful set of photos of a beautiful place.

I do love #6 the best. I agree with you that the roots (and the tree) frame the photo beautifully.

I do not think I can take photos like yours in such a place. I would want to take my shoes off, put my feet in the water, and get lost in thought... But then again, if I could take such gorgeous photos, I could convince my feet to wait awhile...

Great shots of a very beautiful area! Maybe someday I'll travel to places like this...

I saw your tech data ("ISO 50/ 17mm/ f18/ 4"/ ND8/ RT/ TP"), but admit to getting a little lost in there....
ISO, I get. 17mm, I get. f18, I get. 4"....?
ND8, I get. RT? TP?

I'm kinda hoping that the stuff I missed is laying out what film/camera you took these with! I'm getting very curious!

Thanks!
Nate

It's no problem to include them, I was just lost... :) 4 seconds should have made sense to me.

What'd you use for camera etc., though? Colors look pretty darn nice!
